written by Walter Fendt
This simulation illustrates the mechanical advantage possible using multiple pulleys to lift an object. The number of pulleys can be set by the user and the weight lifted also can be varied. Pulley masses are adjustable.

This simulation is part of a large collection of physics applets available in a wide range of languages.

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