## Finding maximum cross sectional area of a Mechanical belt

Question: A leather belt transmits 30 KW from a pulley 750 mm diameter which runs at 500 rpm. The belt is in contact with the pullry over an arc of 160° and coefficient of friction, μ = 0.3. If the permissible stress in the belt is not to exceed 2 MN / m^2, find the maximum…

## Finding Tight side and Slack side tension of a mechanical belt

Question: An electric motor provides 6.6 KW to a belt driven pulley 125 mm in diameter. The speed of the pulley is 1050 rpm. Calculate the tight side and slack side tension of the belt if they are in the ratio 7:2? Ans: Given: Power, P = 6.6KW Diameter, d = 125×10^-3m Speed of the pulley,…
