Pulley…
The pulley a variation of the axle and wheel;
the wheel is grooved to guide a rope, chain
or cable along the circumference of the
wheel, which moves freely around the axle.

Pulley…
At its most simple use, the pulley works to
change the direction of force applied in a
system. More complex uses of pulleys are
frequently used to gain mechanical
advantage in a system.

Pulley Systems…
Fixed (Class 1) Pulley
Moveable (Class II) Pulley
Combination (Class III) Pulley

Fixed Pulley…
Often used to alter the direction
of force in a system
Weight of force is equal to the
weight of the object being
moved.
Advantage is gained by moving
the operator away from the load

Fixed Pulley…
•A fixed pulley does not
increase your force and
therefore gives you no
advantage.
•It helps a person lift
things by changing the
direction of force. It allows
a person to pull down in
order to lift a load up.

Movable pulley (Floating Pulley)…
Used to gain mechanical
advantage to lift weight (W) by
multiplying the forces
Weight of force (F) required to
move the object is equal to the
number of ropes (N) supporting
the load (W). F = W/N

Movable Pulley…
It is called a movable
pulley because it moves
with the load.
The pulley is suspended
by a rope with one
portion of the rope
(called a...
