A pulley system has an efficiency of 71.5 percent. How much of the rope must be pulled in if a force of 641 N is needed to lift a 160 kg desk 2.51 meters?
IMA = De/Dr
MA = Fr/Fe
Efficiency (%) = Wo/Wi
Efficiency (%) = MA/IMA
I have absolutely no idea how to solve this; this is simply a practice problem that I made up and the professor said a similar problem will appear on the test. Could someone show me how to do this?? I would appreciate it greatly.
