In block and tackle system, why the mechanical advantage and the velocity ratio of the pulley system is equal to the number of pulleys that are present in the particular pulley system?

If there are n pulleys used in block and tackle system, then tension in n segments of the string supports the load L.
This can be seen from above figure that illustrates 5 and 4 pulleys system.
Therfore , we have , L = n T
Effort E is applied in the downward direction that balances the tension force T in the string .
Hence , we have , E = T
Mechanical advantage , MA = Load / Effort = L / E = ( n T ) / T = n .
In a system of n pulleys, if the load moves up by a distance d , then each segment of the string supporting the load
is getting loosened by d. Hence the effort end moves downwards by a distance ( n d )
Hence Velocity Ration VR = dE / dL = ( n d ) / d = n
Where dE is the distance moved by effort and dL is the distance moved by load

- A pulley is used to lift a load of 180kgf by applying an effort of 90kgf in the downward direction. calculate the work done by the effort applied on pulley
- Please tell me this question
- A block and tackle system has 4 Pulley to lift the load of 840 Newton through a distance of 12 metre the weight of the movable Pulley is 20 Newton
- the velocity ratio of block and tackle system of police 9 if its efficiency is 95% done by applying an effort of 250 Newton what maximum load can be lifted by pulley system
- what is the First Method Of Combination Of Pulley ?
- ex. 3b numerical 11
- ex. 3b numerical 10
- A block and tackle system has velocity ratio 3 . Draw a labelled diagram of system indicating the point of application and direction of load and effort. A man can exert a pull of 200 kgf. a) what is maximum load he can raise with this pulley system if its efficiency is 60%? b) if effort end moves a distance 60 cm,what distance does the load move?
