Enter the input work (J) and the efficiency (%) into the calculator to determine the Output Work. 

Output Work Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Output Work. 

Wo = Wi * E/100
  • Where Wo is the Output Work (J)
  • Wi is the input work (J) 
  • E is the efficiency (%) 

To calculate the output work, multiply the input work by the efficiency factor.

How to Calculate Output Work?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Output Work.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the input work (J). In this example, the input work (J) is given as 50.
  2. Next, determine the efficiency (%). For this problem, the efficiency (%) is given as 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Output Work using the equation above: 

Wo = Wi * E/100

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

Wo = 50* 10/100 = 5 (J)

Example Problem #2: 

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are:

input work (J) = 100

efficiency (%) = 30

Entering these values yields:

Wo = 100 * 30/100 = 30 (J)
