Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Calculate belts power transmission and efficiency
The torque available at the driven wheel or pulley (
a) can be expressed as
T = (F 2 - F 1) r a (1)
T = torque (Nm)
F = force (N)
r = radius of wheel or pulley
The available power can be expressed as
P = T ω a = (F 2 - F 1) r a ω (2) a
P = power transmitted (watts)
ω a = angular velocity (rad/s) Related Topics Forces, acceleration, displacement, vectors, motion, momentum, energy of objects and more.
