Lets assume that we have a door, we know its weight, its geometry, we can calculate its inertia. It is a side opening door, from the materials for the hinge parts we can find the needed friction torque.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We want the door to be open for example 110 degrees in 4 seconds. what are the other calculations that we have to do in order to obtain a torque that is needed to open this door ?

Thanks very much...
