Types of Wheel Pulleys

Fixed Pulleys

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

Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys move along with the load being lifted, providing a mechanical advantage. They are often seen in window blinds.

Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are suitable for heavy lifting applications like elevators.
