Homework Help: Tangential and radial force

  1. May 20, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to calculate the tangential and radial force acting on a shaft so i can specify the correct bearings to use, however i dont know of any relevant formulae to calculate these, can anyone help?

    Power through the shaft is 1000w
    RPM is 130
    Force acting vertically on the shaft is 1KN

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I havent a clue where to start...

    Any help much appreciated
