Snatch Block! I want to take a moment to thank those of you who support Smarter Every Day on Patreon. I'd also like to point out 2 things about this video. #1. You'll notice Jeremy Fielding is in this video. He's the "Contraption Fabricator" that's started working with me now because of your support on Patreon. He's a great designer, father, and friend. You'll be seeing more of Jeremy around thanks to those who support at www.patreon.com/smartereveryday/ #2. If you'd like to 3D print the Snatch Blocks and pulleys we use in this video they are here: www.thingiverse.com/thing:4022579 #3. I really enjoy KiwiCo and I think you will too. I got them as a Christmas gift for my children years ago, and it was a huge hit. It was after that experience that I reached out to their team and asked if I could advertise for them because of how good it was for our family. I think you'll enjoy it too. www.kiwico.com/smarter It was 3 things... I ended up pointing out 3 things.

I think showing the LENGTH of the rope you pulled with 2 pulleys v.s. 1 pulley will explain everything much better. It took me forever to finally understand. Maybe I am just an idiot. Edit: It's like going 10mph(force) for 2 hour(rope length) vs. going 10mph(force) for 1 hour (rope length). You get more out of it. That's how I understood it anyway.

I carry rope and carabiners while hunting to set up pulley systems to get large game up steep inclines. The input end also helps me climb up at the same time. Carabiners have much more friction, so they hold the load in place better.

Destin, You could have used a third scale, that would be holding the other end of the rope, the one that is fixed and does not move. Also, It is very interesting how the flatten unfolded multi pulley was not moving uniformly, indicating each disc excreted different force. It would be interesting if you replace it with separate pulleys each one holding separate weight (all weight would be with equal mass).

A rule of thumb we always used for figuring out mechanical advantage for rope rescue systems was, if the pulley (or snatch block) is moving with the load, it is providing a mechanical advantage. If it is not moving with the load (i.e. it is attached to an anchor point not a part of the load) it is only providing a change of direction.

@CarlYota 3 ай бұрын
This is how I learned it when setting up a homemade lat pulldown in my gym. You don’t want the system to give you advantage you just want it to offer resistance in the desired direction. You also can’t afford having 2 to 1 ratios of distance. You want the weight to move 1 to 1 what your arms are doing. Otherwise you would have to double the weight to counter the advantage you’re getting. Gym equipment is, of course the opposite intention of many pulley hoisting applications.

@towtruckaj Жыл бұрын
Shouldn't matter much, As you get more blocks in the load your line load reduces. If you have a 4:1 setup then your total load is divided by 4 and that's how much is on each line. So if you want to lift 1000 pounds a straight pull is of course 1000, a single traveling block causing a 2:1 pulley is 500 on each line as well as a 2:1 mechanical advantage so it both cuts the line load in half and doubles the pulling force, a 3:1 does the same its 3 times the pulling force and line load is cut into 3 so you are at 333 pounds per line. If you want to get real complicated you can factor in the angle at which each line is at and that chances the numbers as the farther from 90 degrees or parallel lines the less mechanical advantage and the less line reduction you have.

@towtruckaj 11 ай бұрын
@@ionbusman2086 not really, with my 4:1 for example you are effectively turning 1 line into 4, so it’s really one long line that runs through a bunch of blocks but it acts as if there were 4 because both your mechanical advantage and line load are effected, for each moving block in a perfect world you get double the pulling force and line load is cut in half, so for a 4:1 moving 1000 pounds you would need to pull with 250 pounds of force and each line would have 250 pounds of force on it, so to move 1000 pounds a 250 pound rated rope would work. It’s fairly simple until you start getting into the angles of the blocks and compounded pulley setups. So yes in short the object weight doesn’t change you are still lifting 1000 pounds, but with pulleys you can move that weight with a lot weaker equipment and a lot less force.

@towtruckaj 11 ай бұрын
@@ionbusman2086 what you are describing isn’t a proper mechanical advantage setup, to achieve mechanical advantage the blocks have to be on be load, if you have just one line actually attached to the load no matter how many blocks you have unless it’s a compound setup you don’t have mechanical advantage, for my 4:1 example you would have 2 snatch blocks on the actual load and 4 lines 2 for each block. What you could do if you could only attach one line to the load is have one heavy piece of rigging rating for the full forces then you could compound it and apply mechanical advantage to that one line, so like a 1000 pound cable sling with 250 lb rated rope in a 4:1 connected to that cable.

first, thank you. your willingness to share the power of knowledge is much appreciated. So, years ago, we had a tow truck (an old P.T.O unit with a twin boom system) that we called the "School Marm". So named because on the side door of the equipment locker was the mathematical calculation required for that tow truck to right a capsized battleship. A single, dual line wrecker that weighed in at about 14,000 pounds and delivered maybe 250 horsepower carried the mechanical power to drag a hypothetical battleship, that would weigh in at more than 40,000 tons, back to an upright position, made possible by the mechanical advantage of the mundane pulley. Well, that's my story. And i am sticking to it. Aloha.

In an odd way, this is so much fun. In an interesting follow up to this video, how does it work if the load you are lifting is you? Say you are sitting on a board tied to a rope that goes up to a pull and the slack rope comes right back down to you. To lift yourself up, how much force to you need to apply? You are both pulling the rope down and pulling yourself up at the same time.

@@willsheehan2975 No a pulley is not a lever. a lever is a rig bar resting on a pivot point, called a fulcrum, used to lift heavy loads. A pulley is a grooved wheel which a cord passes through to change the direction of the force needed to lift heavy loads. Just because they are both used to lift heavy loads does not automatically make them the same thing, that is a false equivalency. Thats like saying a swimming pool and a lake are the same thing. They both hold water, they both can have living organisms live inside it, they both allow for swimming... So a swimming pool and a lake must be the same thing.
