Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly used in flagpoles.

Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys move with the load, reducing the effort needed to lift heavy objects. They are often used in elevators.

Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide both direction change and mechanical advantage. They are ideal for lifting heavy loads like in construction sites.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

Increased Mechanical Advantage

Wheel pulleys provide leverage to lift heavy loads with less effort.

Energy Efficiency

Using wheel pulleys reduces the energy required to move heavy objects, making operations more efficient.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting

Regular Maintenance
