Determining torque required

  1. Nov 16, 2006 #1

    How do you calculate or determine newton meter force requirement and rpm's for an electrical motor in the following example:

    A device that utilizes a shaft that is 2 inches in diameter and 6 feet length. It needs to be able to lift 10 pounds and distance of 7 feet in 6 seconds. I need to know the formulas to make these calculations and the requirements needed for this application?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Mr. Nice Guy.

    You are going to have to show your own approach first...

    Edit -- And this should also be in the homework help section of the forum.
