From ancient times man has always been keen in devising machines of different kinds for one basic reason: relieving humans from tasks that are tedious and involve massive efforts. Pulley mechanisms are one of these machines that have been serving mankind since the day they were invented.

The "critical point test" aka "scissors test" requires that if any one item fails, nobody should be injured. A "bend" is a knot that joins two ropes.
From tank treads to bike gears to fishing lines, pulleys are used all over the place when it comes to mechanical transmissions. All types of pulley mechanisms consist of some sort of flexible belt chain, cable, rope, etc. In this Instructable I'll go over some basic pulley concepts and interesting mechanisms, and hopefully you'll be able to design your own pulley systems and make stuff like this! The pulley is one of the six simple machines. Basically, all that a pulley is is a wheel spinning around an axle to aid the motion of a belt.
How to Calculate First, Second and Third Pulley Systems
A pulley is a wheel on an axle or shaft that is designed to support movement and change of direction of a taut cable or belt, or transfer of power between the shaft and cable or belt. In the case of a pulley supported by a frame or shell that does not transfer power to a shaft, but is used to guide the cable or exert a force, the supporting shell is called a block, and the pulley may be called a sheave. A pulley may have a groove or grooves between flanges around its circumference to locate the cable or belt. The drive element of a pulley system can be a rope , cable , belt , or chain. Pulleys are also assembled as part of belt and chain drives in order to transmit power from one rotating shaft to another.
Raising systems are essential in any rescue or rigging scenario in which loads are lifted using rope. A fixed pulley can be looked at as a First Class Lever. The fulcrum is located at the pin in the center of the sheave, directly below the carabiner that anchors the pulley in place. Because the sheave is round, the distance from the pin fulcrum to the point the rope leaves the sheave and drops to the resistance load is equal to the distance from the pin to the point that the rope leaves the sheave and drops to the effort force. The two lever arms are equal resulting in mechanical advantage. A moving pulley can be looked at as a Second Class Lever.
A pulley consists of a wheel with a grooved rim and a block which holds it. A rope runs in the groove around the wheel and one end will usually be attached to either: a weight, a fixed object like the ceiling or to another pulley. Pulleys are often used to lift things. For example, a pulley could be attached to an overhead beam and a rope could be run up and over the pulley to an object on the floor. This would enable a force applied downwards to lift the object off the floor. A simple single pulley like this is usually used to change the direction of a force. It is much easier to apply a downward force using your bodyweight than it is to apply the same force by pulling something upwards.

Pulley Problems On this page I put together a collection of pulley problems to help you understand pulley systems better. The required equations and background reading to solve these problems are given on the friction page , the equilibrium page , and Newton's second law page. Determine the pulling force F. Determine the acceleration of the blocks. Ignore the mass of the pulley. Hint and answer Problem 3 Two blocks of mass m and M are connected via pulley with a configuration as shown.
A pulley is a simple machine that makes it easier to lift objects, by requiring less input force. Learn about the mechanical advantage of pulleys, and how to calculate the mechanical advantage, based on the number of rope sections in the pulley system. Simple machines make our lives easier by allowing us to do tasks with less force. The mechanical advantage is the factor of which a machine multiplies the force put into it. A pulley is an example of a simple machine that uses ropes around wheels that have a groove in them. To calculate the mechanical advantage of a pulley you simply have to count the number of rope sections that support whatever object you are lifting not counting the rope that is attached to the effort.
A pulley is a wheel that you loop a rope over. The key scientific concept for pulleys is that they redirect force. All pulley systems re-direct force. Some pulley systems make work easier, allowing a worker to use less force to move the object.
