I'm using pwr-tools software to calculate power and torque.

    I'm using pwr-tools software to calculate power and torque. I'm not sure of the answer I'm getting is clear.
    Problem:
    30" diameter stainless steel rim with a 3" face. OD is 30"-ID is 29.5"
    Rpm is 6000
    The reducer is 98%efficient and the ratio is 5:1 (please use 98% in the calculation)
    The prime mover is a bldc 1 horse power motor
    What is the torque at the output shaft of the reducer at 1200rpm?
