Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys do not move, and are often used to change the direction of a force. They are commonly found in flagpoles and construction cranes.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys move with the load, providing a mechanical advantage. They are frequently used in elevators and ziplines.

3. Compound Pulleys

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