Shaft that rotates a wheel

  1. Aug 26, 2008 #1
    there is a wheel. A shaft which rotates about a pivot point a is connected to the wheel
    at the point b. what is the influence of the distance a to b in the torque applied to the wheel . the wheel just rests on the shaft at point a and it is not welded to the shaft.
