A flat-belt system has small pulley with 6-inch diameter and large pulley with 10-inch diameter. Small pulley transmits 2 hp at 2450 rpm, and back force of 10 pounds in belt is required for frictional purposes.
• Determine front force, net driving force, and force on shafts.
• Find belt surface speed and output speed.
answer : D1 = 6 inchi
D2 = 10 inchi
P = 2 hp
n = 2450 rpm
Fb = 10 lb
