**Mechanical Advantage with Pulleys
**

Purpose: Assemble a pulley system to create a mechanical advantage. Draw free body diagrams and

apply Newton’s Law to accelerating systems.

Materials: Assorted pulleys, neon-yellow string, accumulated physics expertise

Procedure:

1. Assemble the following pulley system

2. Draw the free body diagrams for both M

1

and the bottom pulley in equilibrium.

3. What is the relationship between the tensions in each FBD (free body diagram)?

4. If M

2

equals 100g:

a. What is the weight on the bottom pulley?

b. Calculate the tension in the string at equilibrium. (∑F=0)

c. Using the tension from b. calculate the weight of M

1

.

d. Now calculate the mass of M

1

. How does this value compare to M

2

?

5. Attach the 100g mass to the bottom pulley (M

2

). Find M

1

at the end of the string to create

equilibrium.

6. How do the masses in #’s 4d. and 5 compare? Discuss the results and account for any

differences.

7. You can never get something for nothing! What is the trade-off that enables us to lift more

weight with less force?

8. What is the relationship between F and W for the system to the right?

(hint: no calculations necessary!)

9. Analyze the complex pulley system from the class demonstration.

a. Draw the free body diagram for the bottom pulley.

b. Assuming a person weighs 600N, calculate the tension necessary

to maintain equilibrium.

c. In real-life estimate the force necessary to lift this person at a

constant velocity.

Extra Credit

Apply pulley concepts and use the remaining pulleys to create the largest mechanical advantage. See

how much weight can be lifted with the least amount of force.

Homework Questions

Σ F = m a

Analyze the forces in the x and y directions independently

1. The 5-kg box is suspended with a rope and pulley system as shown.

What are the forces of tension, F

1

, and F

2

, in the rope? showing all

of the forces on the box.

2. The 5-kg box is now suspended with a rope and pulley system as

shown. What is the force, F

1

required to

A. keep the block stationary?

B. accelerate the block with upward acceleration of 2 m/s

2

?

C. keep the block moving upward at constant velocity of 3 m/s?

D. accelerate the block downward with a = 9.8 m/s

2

?

3. A 10-kg box sits on a table with a mass and pulley system attached to it as

shown below. If the coefficient of static friction is µ

s

= 0.3, what is the

maximum mass, M, possible such that the box on the table will not slide?

Hint: Draw a free body diagram for each mass.
