Question

Name the pulley which has no gain in mechanical advantage. Explain, why is such a pulley then used?

Solution

There is no gain in mechanical advantage in the case of a single fixed pulley. A single fixed pulley is used only to change the direction of the force applied that is with its use, the effort can be applied in a more convenient direction. To raise a load directly upwards is difficult.
