# Wheel and Axle Mechanical Advantage Calculator

Here is an online wheel and axle mechanical advantage calculator to determine the mechanical advantage of a wheel and axle with ease within fractions of seconds.

Try this online **mechanical advantage of wheel and axle calculator** to simplify your calculations and get reliable results within fractions of seconds.

**Wheel and Axle:** A simple machine with a wheel attached to the axle is called as wheel and axle. The wheel is fastened so that torque applied to the wheel winds a rope or chain onto the axle, yielding a mechanical advantage.

** Mechanical advantage of wheel and axle:** It equal to the ratio of the diameter of the wheel to that of the axle. To find it without any complex manual calculations you can use our online **wheel and axle mechanical advantage calculator**. And for manual calculations steps, you can refer the below-given example problem.

### Example:

Calculate the mechanical advantage of wheel and axle for the following data :

Wheel radius = 25 cm

Axle Radius = 45 cm

#### Solution:

Mechanical Advantage of Wheel and Axle = 25/45

= 0.5556
