Homework Help: Linear servo to drive mass

  1. Aug 11, 2014 #1
    I have a linear slider with the following specs:

    Max allowable dynamic moment: 36.3 Nm
    Load capacity based on acceleration of: 0.3G
    Offset distance from center of slider to center of load: 305mm
    Mass of load: 50lb

    I did the following calcuation

    36.2N*m = X(Kg) * 305mm * 0.3G * 9.8/1000
    X = 40Kg or approx 88lbs

    I can conclude this slide is capable of moving this mass.

    Is my math correct? :)
