(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Force of 200 foot pounds of torque is being exerted on a axle of a disc which is turning at 1.57 radians. The disk has a moment of inertia of 234 kg per meter squared and it's 1.5 inch diameter axle has a prony brake installed applying a load of 200 foot pounds of torque at the axle. How much work and power is being created by this situation

.

2. Relevant equations

W=fd

Moi

Power = f x d /time

3. The attempt at a solution

1.57 rad/sec x 234 kg /m2 = 367 Nm

How does the prony brake get accounted f
