In a wheel and axle, the fulcrum is in thecenter. The outside rim of the wheel is like the handle of alever; it just wraps all the way around. A pulley is justwhat it looks like, a wheel and axle with a groove to hold arope around the outside edge. A lever helps you do more workthan you could do by yourself.
