Power and torque

  1. Jun 29, 2012 #1
    Hello!


    I’m new on this forum and I would like to ask you for help.

    I have a project to make about an electric machine, that needs to reach the velocity of 6 m/s, with an acceleration of 12 m/s^2 and a load of 130 kilos.


    It is being asked to calculate the starting torque ,the torque to maintain a constant speed of 6 m/s, the distance and time to stop and the engine power, knowing that the motor is 3000 rpm and the wheel has a diameters of 20 cm.

    Thanks a lot!

    Have a go at some solutions yourself, and let us know where you are getting stuck.

    I want to know what is the neccessary power to move this mashine and the minimum torque to move it.
