Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys have a stationary wheel and are commonly used in situations where the direction of force needs to be changed, such as flagpoles.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a wheel that moves with the load, offering a mechanical advantage and are often used in lifting systems like cranes.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine multiple fixed and movable pulleys to increase the load capacity and are ideal for heavy lifting applications like elevators.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys

1. Increased Mechanical Advantage
