Nope Nope Nope Nope February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 2 Yep 3 Two Pulleys Two Pulleys Two Pulleys Two Pulleys s Ropes and pulleys can be combined to lift objects that are too heavy to lift otherwise s Let’s consider the case of two pulleys s One pulley is tied to the ceiling and the other is movable s A mass m is hung from the movable pulley s We pull down on the rope to lift the movable pulley s We assume that the pulleys are massless and frictionless February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 3 4 Two Pulleys (1) Two Pulleys (1) Two Pulleys (1) Two Pulleys (1) s Mass m hung from a system of two pulleys February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 4 5 Two Pulleys (2) Two Pulleys (2) Two Pulleys (2) Two Pulleys (2) s First observation: tension in string is the same everywhere! s Free-body diagram of block (in y direction): F g- T 3 = February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 5 s Free-body diagram of pulley B above block (also y direction): T 3 = F g = mg 2 T 1- T 3 = T 1 = 1 2 T 3 6 Two Pulleys (3) Two Pulleys (3) Two Pulleys (3) Two Pulleys (3) s Combine these two equations: s => Important result: If you use this pulley system, you only need to apply a force equal to 1/2 of the eight of the object. T 1 = 1 2 T 3 = 1 2 mg February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 6 weight of the object. s The pulley A only serves to redirect the force T 1 in this example: 2 T 1- T 2 = T 2 = 2 T 1 7 Two Pulleys (4) Two Pulleys (4) Two Pulleys (4) Two Pulleys (4) s Final remark: • Combining all equations, we arrive at the conclusion: • This means that the ceiling mount f the upper pulley carries the T 2 = 2 T 1 = 2( 1 2 T 3 ) = T 3 = F g February 1, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
