## Homework Statement:

- my assignment is that we should design a go kart braking system

## Homework Equations:

- shaft design calculations

i have been stuck on this question from my assignment, i have tried solving it in many ways, but apparently i am either bad at this or i just don't understand the question haha.

* As a prudent engineer, the main shaft is now subjected to loading condition when only

brake is applied. Show with calculation that the existing main shaft size is safe when braking

torque is applied. You should include a sketch showing all forces, loads and torques that are

acting on the main shaft complete with dimensions.

i have the main shaft size, i just didn't really understand how to use it, and how to prove that it is safe.

excuse my incompetence but i really tried my best
