Data
*to get resistance force: multiply mass kg x 9.8m/s2
*resistance distance is how much the weight moves
*effort distance is how much the scale moves

Analysis
1.The effort distance is very much greater than the resistance distance in which
machine?
2.The effort force is very much less than the resistance force in which machine?
3.In which machine is the work output greater than the work input?
4.Explain how using a single fixed pulley to raise a flag makes the task easier:
5.Explain how using a single fixed pulley to raise a flag makes the task easier:
6.Compre the efficiencies of the single fixed pulley and the block and tackle. Why
would you expect the block and tackle to be less efficient than the single fixed
pulley?
