In physics, resistance force is the force which an effort force must overcome in order to do work on an object via a simple machine. Resistance force, like most other forces, is measured in newtons or in pounds-force.
- R equals resistance force
- DR equals resistance distance
- E equals effort force
- DE equals effort distance
Resistance force is used to calculate the work output using the following equation:
