what is the down force on the connecting rod?
i tinnk ive work most of it but i'm a bit unsure of what to do next?
A train of mass 138800kg
have 24 wheels (12 axles)
V = 37.1 m/s
s= 694 m
R = 0.4 m
r = 0.21 m
V2 = U2 + 2 x a x s
Average braking force for the whole train = m x a
The Attempt at a Solution
a = -0.99m/s
Average braking force for the whole train 138800 x -0.99 = 137KN
braking Force for each wheel 137/24 = 5.7KN
so this is were i need the help please
Were is this braking force atchley acting on the wheel ( at the rim the edge of were?)
when the force F is clamping on the wheel the force from the wheel will transfer to the rod?
