Calculation of Torque (Not Homework, just )

In summary, torque is a measure of rotational force that is calculated by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the point of rotation. The formula for calculating torque is T = F x r, where T is torque, F is force, and r is distance. Torque is typically measured in newton-meters or foot-pounds and affects rotational motion by causing an object to rotate and change direction. Real-world applications of torque calculation include designing engines, turning screws and bolts, determining gear ratios, and understanding structural stability.

Need some help to fabricating a new fixture.

Currently our application shown in the picture. but i need to calculate the torque required to move the shaft. IF can, the speed of rotation should be around 35 rpm.

I need the torque value before i can determine what model of magnet resistance motor that i can use to replace the load disc.

Thank you.

For a rotation at constant speed, net torque is zero. You need to know what resistances there aere.
 

Related to Calculation of Torque (Not Homework, just )

What is torque and how is it calculated?

Torque is a measure of the rotational force applied to an object. It is calculated by multiplying the force applied to the object by the distance from the point of rotation to the point where the force is applied.

What is the formula for calculating torque?

The formula for calculating torque is T = F x r, where T is torque, F is force, and r is the distance from the point of rotation to the point where the force is applied.

What are the units of torque?

The units of torque are typically represented in newton-meters (Nm) or foot-pounds (ft-lbs). These units represent the amount of force being applied multiplied by the distance from the point of rotation.

How does torque affect rotational motion?

Torque affects rotational motion by causing an object to rotate around an axis. The greater the torque applied to an object, the greater its rotational acceleration will be. This can also cause an object to change its direction of rotation.

What are some real-world applications of torque calculation?

Torque calculation is used in many real-world applications, such as designing and building engines, calculating the force needed to turn a screw or bolt, and determining the optimal gear ratio in a vehicle's transmission. It is also crucial in understanding the balance and stability of structures, such as bridges and buildings.
