Multiple Pulley's Lifting Mechanical Advantage

Mechanics and Machines Calculations Menu

The following are the equations and calculator to determine the lifting forcing and velocity ratio of a differential pulley.

lifting forcing and velocity ratio

ALL calculators require a Premium Membership

Force to Raise Load:

F = eW/(VR)

Velocity ratio VR = 2/[1-r/R]


W = Load (lbs, N)
F = Applied force (lbs, N)
r = Radius (in, mm)
R = Radius (in, mm)
e =efficiency (%)
