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 (%) 

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)
