Mechanical advantage is the ratio of the force required without the use of a machine (sometimes very simple machine) to that needed when using the machine. Compare the force to lift an object to that needed to slide the same object up a frictionless incline and show that the mechanical advantage of the inclined plane is the length of the incline divided by the height of the incline.
