- How did the resistance force relate to the effort force for the fixed pulley alone? How did the resistance force relate to the effort force when you added a movable pulley to the fixed pulley? How does the mechanical advantage compare with the slope of the line for each pulley? Explain using your data.
- How did the work output relate to the work input for the pulleys? Explain using your data.
- Briefly summarize how the pulleys worked with respect to changes in effort force and effort distance compared with resistance force and resistance distance. What are the advantages of using pulleys? What do you think would happen to the mechanical advantage if you added a third movable pulley?
( The lab instructions are here, I’m not sure if this can be done without the actual pieces of the lab but if anyone could help me with this that would be great. All I need answered is the three questions above. Something a highschooler could understand please )
