A gear train is to be designed to transmit power from shaft 1 to shaft 2 with the following condition:
Shaft 1 (driven by an electric motor) rotates at 100 revs min–1.
Shaft 2 is to rotate at 400 revs min–1 in the opposite direction to shaft 1 against a load of 200 Nm.
All shafts have a frictional resistance of 5 Nm.
Question: Determine the input power required at shaft 1
The gear train I have put together consists of a drive gear, two idlers and the output gear in a linear form.
Can someone point me in the right direction, any help would be appreciated!
