Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

Fixed pulleys are stationary and change the direction of the force applied. They are commonly used in lifting systems where the direction of force needs to be altered.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are attached to the object being moved, and the effort force is applied to the pulley itself. They provide a mechanical advantage, making it easier to lift heavy loads.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine both fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage even further. They are used in applications where a high amount of force is required.

4. Examples and Applications

Fixed pulleys are often used in flagpoles, while movable pulleys can be found in cranes. Compound pulleys are preferred in construction sites for lifting heavy materials.

5. Preference in Applications

Certain types of pulleys are preferred over others based on the specific application requirements. For example, movable pulleys are preferred when heavy loads need to be lifted with less effort, while compound pulleys are chosen for tasks requiring a significant mechanical advantage.

Advantages of Using Wheel Pulleys
