Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys do not move and are used to change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly found in flagpoles and blinds.

Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys can move along with the load and provide a mechanical advantage. They are often used in lifting systems and cranes.

Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are ideal for heavy lifting applications like elevators.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys
