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 to raise and lower flags.

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys are attached to the object being moved, reducing the amount of force needed. They are often used in lifting heavy objects like stage equipment.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are ideal for applications where a heavier load needs to be lifted.
