Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

  • Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied.
  • These are commonly used in flagpoles or lifting applications.

Movable Pulleys

  • Movable pulleys can move along with the load being lifted, reducing the amount of effort needed.
  • They are ideal for raising heavy objects like curtains or blinds.

Compound Pulleys

  • Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to provide both direction change and mechanical advantage.
  • These are often used in systems like elevators or cranes.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys
