Question: Just as there are block & tackle that amplify weight handling, for example, a man pulls down on a rope with 10 lbs of force and lifts 100 lbs as a result: Are there mechanical devices that amplify distance? E.G. a man moves down a 100 lbs weight 4 feet and thereby moves upward a 10 lbs weight 8 feet or 10 feet or 12 feet, etc. The block & tackle system sacrifices distance for weight amplification. The distance amplifier sacrifices weight for increased distance? Anything in classical mechanics or Newtonian physics that has been overlooked?
