Testing Pulley Efficiency

When using pulley systems, mechanical advantage is expressed as the ratio of the amount of output force to the amount of input force. For example, a '3:1' system has three times the amount of output force as the input force. If a person pulls with 10 units of force, this system will apply 30 units of force to the load. This allows a person to lift a load much greater than would be able to be lifted without the help of the system. This is the mechanical advantage. Rope rescue, rope acces...
