    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    Describe the forces acting on the shaft AB

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've ignored the bearings for now.... but I know each of them has 2 forces, 1 in the radial direction and the other in the tangential direction ... Anyway, this is my diagram (sans bearing forces)

    I assumed shaft AB rotates clockwise

    Hey Fp!

    Looks good!
    I'd add the forces in the bearings A and B as well though.
