“In the single fixed pulley (fig. 1) there is no mechanical advantage, the power and weight being equal. It may be considered as a lever of the first kind with equal arms. In the single movable pulley (fig. 2) where the cords are parallel there is a mechanical advantage, there being an equilibrium when the power is considered as a lever of the second kind, in which the distance of the power from the fulcrum is double hat of the weight from the fulcrum.” -Marshall
