Efficiency

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Efficiency is expressed in percentage and always less than 100%.

Efficiency formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ \eta =  \frac {E_o} {E_i} 100 \% }\)

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ \eta =  \frac {W_o} {W_i} 100 \% }\)

Where:

\(\large{ \eta }\)  (Greek symbols eta) = efficiency

\(\large{ E_i }\) = input energy

\(\large{ E_o }\) = output energy

\(\large{ W_i }\) = input work

\(\large{ W_o }\) = output work
