Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

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

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys can move along with the load being lifted, providing a mechanical advantage. They are often used in elevators.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are preferred in heavy lifting applications like construction sites.

4. Example Applications

– Fixed pulleys: Flagpoles

– Movable pulleys: Elevators

– Compound pulleys: Construction sites
