Homework Help: Torque Capability of gear

  1. Nov 16, 2011 #1
    Hi all, I am new to this forum and hope to get some understanding about the torque capability of gear.
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1) Can anyone explain to me about the torque capability?
    2) I got some data on torque capability of mod 3.0 spur gear with 50 teeth and 1000rpm, but what i need is to find the torque capability of gear with 59 teeth and 1140 rpm. How can i do that?

    Pitch torque check
    50 teeth x 1000rpm with module of 3
    Torque = 615 Nm
    HP = 86

    2. Relevant equations
    1HP = 746 W
    Power = Torque x angular velocity
    No. of teeth x module = diameter

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I had tried using the ratio method for the 59 teeth and 1140 rpm but doesn't seem right. Anyone have any idea how to do it?
    Thanks a lot in advance who ever read this and help me. :D
