## Homework Statement

What would be the effect on the following if the load torque is increased and the speed maintains constant:

a) the tension in the tight side of the belt

b) the tension in the slack side of the belt

c) the power transmitted

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I believe I need to find a relationship between the torque T and the F1, F2 and power P.

I will start with the easiest one which I believe is c).

P=T*w

If w is constant, then when the torque will increase, power will also increase.

I have a problem with F1 and F2. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to create a relationship between the P and F1 and P and F2?
