    In my design ,total mass of goods and pallet is 300kg and move with speed 0.3m/s.I found some book that give a mathematical formula to caculate torkque but it is only for belt conveyor. In the roller conveyor,which have alot of chain that interlink in pairs so it make me difficult to calculate torque of motor precisely.Any body can help me ?
