A block and tackle system of pulleys consists of two blocks of pulleys, each block having one or more than one pulleys. The upper block of pulleys is fixed to a rigid support and the lower block of pulleys is movable. The number of pulleys in the movable block is either equal or one less than the number of pulleys in the fixed block.
While rounding the string, its one end is attached to the hook of movable block if the number of pulleys in the fixed block is more than that in the movable block or to the hook of the fixed block if the number of pulleys is the same in both the blocks.
