Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

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

Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are attached to the object being moved, reducing the amount of force needed. They can be seen in window blinds.

Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to provide increased mechanical advantage. They are often used in lifting systems.
