pulleys and gear wheels

Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary pulleys that change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly used in flagpoles or lifting applications where direction change is needed.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are pulleys that move along with the load being lifted, providing a mechanical advantage. They are often used in systems where a high mechanical advantage is required.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys consist of both fixed and movable pulleys working together to provide a greater mechanical advantage. They are ideal for lifting heavy loads with less effort.

4. Examples of Usage

– Fixed pulleys are used in clotheslines or elevators.

– Movable pulleys are found in cranes or flag hoists.

– Compound pulleys are preferred in construction or industrial settings for heavy lifting tasks.

5. Preferred Types

– Fixed pulleys are preferred for simple lifting tasks.

– Movable pulleys are chosen for applications requiring a mechanical advantage.

– Compound pulleys are ideal for heavy lifting where efficiency is key.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys
