Mechanical Advantage of a wedge
The wedge has a great mechanical advantage. The more acute, or narrow, the angle of a wedge, the greater the ratio of the length of its slope to its width, and thus the more mechanical advantage it will yield. To determine the advantage of a wedge divide the length of the slope by its height. For double wedges divide the force distance by the resistance force.
