    Please explain in detail about toggle joint, especially about its mechanical advantage.

    We did an experiment in which theoretical value of mechanical advantage was always less than the experimental values. We used the formula MA = D/4l for theoretical measurement of mechanical advantage and MA= Load/effort for experimental value. Can someone explain it because it think experimental values are always less than theoretcal ones.
