Description:

This simulation illustrates the mechanical advantage possible using multiple pulleys to lift an object. The number of pulleys can be set by the user and the weight lifted also can be varied. Pulley masses are adjustable. The force necessary to lift the mass is computed by the simulation, and is illustrated either by a vector in the simulation or a simulated spring scale. This simulation is part of a large collection of physics applets available in a wide range of languages.
