Examples of Pulleys?

Answer

A pulley is a wheel with a grooved rim around which a cord passes. The purpose of a pulley is to use the force of the pulley to lift or move objects that would be hard for human beings to lift or move on their own. Examples of pulleys include block and tackle, oil derricks, rock climber pulleys, flagpole pulleys, steam shovels, window blinds, winches, chair lifts, and board lifts. The mechanism used to lift sails on a sailboat also is a pulley
