Unformatted text preview: when it became two different pulley systems, since it would just be the multiplication of the two advantages. Then the professor requested that we gain an amount of advantage higher than 100 since Archimedes must have had to do that with pulling such a large boat so far away. We just added a quite easy one with a four pulley method basically multiply the advantage of 36 by four and gaining our goal of over 100. I believe overall it was a general group success as we learned how easy it is to move a very heavy object with the right pulley design whether the distance is close in the case of our experiments or very far in the case of Archimedes with his boat....
