EF-4.1 – Kinematics – Pulleys

The EF-4.1 Pulleys experiments kit introduces students to various types of pulleys including fixed, movable and compound pulleys. These experiments show the advantages of using different types of pulleys as a way of lifting weights.

Description

The Engineering Fundamentals range enables students to gain an understanding of the principles of engineering by the process of learning via experimentation.

The EF-4.1 Pulleys experiments kit introduces students to various types of pulleys including fixed, movable and compound pulleys. These experiments show the advantages of using different types of pulleys as a way of lifting weights.

The kit also allows students to familiarise themselves with a simple windlass or wheel and axle, and how this can allow a large load to be lifted whilst still maintaining a mechanical advantage, a differential windlass, how a capstan device allows high loads to be controlled by a relatively low restraining force and a Weston differential or chain hoist.

The kit introduces students to terms such as mechanical advantage, velocity ratio, work done, efficiency and the laws of a machine.
