Hi everyone, im just looking at some calculations i did a while ago, where i have a hydraulic ram with a rotating sprocket on top, with chain passing over it attached to a load at the the other end. It is a similar set up to a forklift.

My query is:

Can the sprocket and chain set up be equated to rope on a pulley?

The simple answer is 'yes'. A sprocket is essentially a pulley that minimizes slippage.
