Types of Wheel Pulleys

1. Fixed Pulleys

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

2. Movable Pulleys

Movable pulleys have a pulley that moves with the load, providing a mechanical advantage. They are often used in cranes and elevators.

3. Compound Pulleys

Compound pulleys combine fixed and movable pulleys to increase the mechanical advantage. They are preferred in systems that require lifting heavy loads with less effort, such as in construction sites.

4. Examples of Usage

– Fixed pulleys: Flagpoles, clotheslines

– Movable pulleys: Cranes, elevators

– Compound pulleys: Construction sites
