Question

A block and tackle system has 5 pulleys. If an effort 0f 1000 N is needed in the downward direction to raise a load of 4500 N, calculate:
(a) the mechanical advantage
(b) the velocity ratio, and
(c) the efficiency of the system

Solution

A block and tackle system has 5 pulleys. (n = 5)
Effort = 1000 N
Load = 4500 N
(a) The mechanical advantage M.A = `"𝑙𝑜𝑎𝑑"/"𝑒𝑓𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑡"`= `4500/1000` = 4.5
(b) The velocity ratio = n = 5
(c) The efficiency of the system η = `"𝑀.𝐴"/"𝑉.𝑅"`= `4.5/5`` = 0.9 𝑜𝑟 90%
