Item Picture
written by Walter Fendt
This applet demonstrates equilibrium of three forces in a system consisting of two pulleys and three weights connected by strings. The user can adjust the weights and the placement of the pulleys. The applet shows the user the appearance of the setup, the angles between the lines that hold the weights, and the parallelogram demonstrating the force vectors.

This applet is available in a wide range of languages.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.4.2 of Java.
