Practice Problem 2-1 Back | IndexNext

Given: A shaft with two gears, A and B, is driven by a motor. Gears A and B are acted upon by tangential forces FA = 120 lb and FB = 200 lb. The gear diameters are DA = 6 in. and DB =10 in., respectively.

Req'd: Determine the motor output torque TM required to turn the shaft at a constant rate.

TM =  lb-in.  (1%)
