This simulation allows students to visualize some characteristics of a working pulley such as applied force, work, pulled distance. Changing load, distance to lift and pulley diameter students can see how these variables influence the result.

I am very happy with this lab simulation.  I am looking for virtual experiments that my students can work on from home, and this is a well-designed application.  I will post additional comments after I have tried it with my conceptual physics students (high school algebra-based physics.)

I created a lab sheet to go with this simulation.


Thank you so much to the creator of this simulation. I previously used this simulation but it required flash player which is no longer available. What ever you have done allows me to use this again. And thank you for the pre-done lab sheet. I was just starting to create one when I realized there was one attached.
