The students should deflect a force with a fixed pulley and determine whether the forces and distances are changed by doing this.

Further, through experiment and calculation they should determine whether the products of load × load distance and force × force distance are equal.

The term "(slotted) weight" is incorrect inasmuch as we are dealing with a mass which becomes a weight (in reality "a weight-force") under the influence of the earth's gravity. The term "mass piece" used here is better.
