    DIY Simple analog engine dynamometer -- How to do it?

    Hi, I have to measure the HP of a small engine at the crankshaft. The only usable things are. A dinamometer A brake disk An rpm meter The brake caliper is floating so when we apply de load it pull the dinamometer. The rpm meter show the revolution during the load apply. It can works? How I...

    Engineering Moment of a force about point O

    G'day. I have a problem with my statics work, i understand its probably quite simple but im having trouble in my understanding. Essentially problems make more sense to me by using the component method, although in saying that i understand this problem would be quite a lot more simple were i to...

    Mechanics: A bowling ball is thrown and rolls with slipping

    Summary:: A bowling ball is thrown on a bowling lane with the coefficient of friction ##\mu## with an initial velocity of ##v_0## and no rotation. After hitting the ground, it starts rolling with slipping. After how much time after hitting the lane will the ball stop slipping? What will be its...

    I Confusion About Rotational Motion

    I watched a video that showed how to calculate the center of gravity of a horizontal bar suspended from two wires, one attached to each end. Each wire was then attached to a vertical wall. The angle each wire made with the wall it was attached to was given. They treated it as an a example of...

    Automotive Vehicle Parking Brake Test on a Slope [How Convert to a Flat Ground test?]

    Vehicle Mass : 3 tonnes Manufacturer's instruction is to test vehicle's parking brake effectiveness is to engage parking brake on 30.96 degrees slope. If it holds, it is effective. I do not have 30.96 degrees slope & I want to replicate the same test on flat ground. I was thinking of...

    I Moment of inertia where mass and torque are at a different positions

    The formula for moment of inertia is: I=mr^2 A common derivation for this is: 1. F=ma 2. τ=rma 3. τ=rmrα = r^2 mα This is a rotational version of Newton’s second law, where torque replaces force, moment of inertia replaces mass, and angular acceleration replaces tangential acceleration...

    Question on torque balancing

    So I tried using force balancing. I have attached files of my solution in my notebook Torque balancing about O which gives me equation 1 And I used property of triangle, for equation 2 But i can't seem to get the right answer Also, I was wondering if it could be done by concept of virtual work.

    Determining moment (or torque) around a certain point on a wrench

    Here's a diagram of the problem. There are 3 possible solutions: 163 in-lb clockwise, 163 in-lb counterclockwise, 82.7 clockwise or none of them. After attempting the problem the closest I got to was 82.7 but that was wrong so I'm still stuck.

    Torque on a circular current loop

    Can anyone please tell me why the torque on a circular current loop can be calculated by the equation below? In other words, what is the intuition for the formula? Thank you. (I modified my question to a particular case) $$ \vec{\tau} = I \vec{A} \times \vec{B} $$

    B What force will be felt by ##B## when a rod is rotated?

    We have a rod ##AB## of mass ##m##, a force (perpendicular to AB) is applied at ##A##. I want to know how much force will ##B## going to feel? When ##F_1## is applied at ##A## rod will rotate about its COM (which lies at the Center) and hence the point ##B## will also move (a little downwards...

    I Integral for the calculation of torque

    Hello, I found an integral to calculate the torque from the applied torsional shear stress, and I didn't find an explanation of how this integral is deviated. Where does it come from? Could someone explain? T = ∫τ⋅r⋅dA = ∫τ⋅2πr⋅dr, where T is the torque and τ the shear stress. Thanks a lot!

    The torque (and stalling torque) of a servo motor

    I'm using a servo to lift a pen. The pen and a bit of mechanism weights 35g. The servo I use to bring the pen up and down claims to have a torsional moment of 1.5kg/cm. Sometimes they call it torque in the specs. But surely that does not mean they are claiming that if I hung a 1.5kg weight a...

    I Angular Momentum Vector and Torque Vector

    In studying gyroscopic progression, the angular momentum vector is added to the torque vector. As intuitively these two vectors seem to be qualitatively quite different, how do we know that both vectors are in the same vector field and that they can be manipulated using the rules of vector...

    Why is the wedge force positive?

    As per (b) in the above image, or easily solved with t=rFsin(theta), the perpendicular force is 260N. When inputting that value into the equation for torque, the value for torque is 520Nm, as per t=2.00*300*sin60. Because the wedge prevents the door from moving, the torque on/at the doorknob...
