A lever is a simple machine consisting of a rigid rod or beam that pivots around a fixed point called a fulcrum to multiply force. A pulley is a simple machine that consists of a wheel with a groove around its circumference and a rope or belt that runs along the groove to lift or move objects. Essentially, levers are used to amplify force, while pulleys are used to change the direction of a force.
