So that I have more understanding...
Is the weight only carried by the string between pulleys B-C, C-D, G-H, H-I , I-to end?
Also; Is my W/2 at pulleys C and H correct?
Do I substitute W/5 for where I have W/8 throughout the string?
Yes, I knew my W/2 did not add up correctly with 2 - W/8 loads. That is really where I need help.
W = Load
W/2 is a pulley at each end of the W
The angle is not counted at this time to avoid further confusion.
The end of the string is lifting W
I drew the tangent of middle pulleys for...
I am an old dog, and rusty propeller head. I am having the most difficult time figuring out the forces on a pulley system I am working on. Can someone please review my sketch and tell me if I am even close. I would accept any suggestions and direction.
