Steps for solving problem for finding power, Mechanical Engineering

STEPS FOR SOLVING PROBLEM FOR FINDING POWER:

1. Use formula stress (s) = force (Maximum Tension)/Area

Where; Area = b.t that is, Tmax = σ.b.t

2. Unit mass (m) = r.b.t.L Where;

r = Density of material

b = Width of Belt t = Belt thickness L = Unit length

Take L = 1m, if b and t are in meter

Take L = 100cm, if b and t are in cm

Take L = 1000mm, if b and t are in mm

3. Calculate V using V = ΠDN/60 m/sec

4. TC  = mV2, For finding TC

5. Tmax  = T1 + Tc, for finding T1

6. For T2, By using relation Ratio of belt tension = T1/T2  = eµθ

7. Power Transmitted = (T1-T2).V/1000 Kw
