Pulley System
  1. Crystal lifting the bucket on her own
  2. Crystal using the pulley system to lift the bucket
  3. Crystal must use the same effort if she lifts the bucket or uses the pulley system
9. 
Which is true about the amount of work that must be done to lift a bucket using the pulley shown compared to lifting the same bucket without a pulley?
Movable Pulley
  1. less work is done when lifting with the pulley
  2. less work is done when lifting without the pulley
  3. the same amount of work is done lifting with or without the pulley
10. 
Look at the pulley and first class lever below.
Pulley Fixed Pulley

First Class Lever First Class Lever

Which statement best describes the relationship between the pulley and first class lever?
  1. the pulley is similar to the first class lever because it has a fulcrum between the load and effort force
  2. the pulley is similar to the first class lever because it has an effort force between a fulcrum and load
  3. the pulley is similar to the first class lever because it has load between a fulcrum and effort force
  4. there are no similarities between the pulley and first class lever
