This applet demonstrates the mechanical advantage that can be achieved by a pulley. There are three systems with different numbers of pulleys connected to masses. The systems start at equilibrium and allow the user to change the masses of the blocks and observe the resultant motion. This item is part of a large collection of physics simulations. A discussion board monitored by the author is available for each simulation, and registered users may download the applet for offline classroom use.
