Velocity Ratio of A Pulley System

2 Pulley System
2 Pulley System
The pulley system to the left is used to raise a weight. Assuming that there is no slip between the pulley and rope and that the pulleys rotate without friction Determine:

The Velocity Ratio.
The velocity ratio is defined as [math]\frac{V_F}{V_W}[/math] where [math]V_F[/math] is the velocity at the point the force F is applied and [math]V_W[/math] is the velocity at the suspended weight.

Force analysis (Brick Holder)
This simple tool uses the principle of friction to allow a person to carry many bricks with ease. This question analyses the forces on the different parts of the tool and using the equations of static equilibrium resolves forces to calculate the minimum load that can be carried.
