Could you pull a 12 tonne truck single handedly?

With the help of a few pulleys, you could!!! We investigated using pulleys by lifting a weight with a different amount of pulleys in the mechanism. By using Newton meters we found that the greater the number of pulleys, the less effort needed to lift the weight. However… you need to pull the rope a further distance to lift the weight.
