I Torque for a rotating link

  1. Jun 15, 2016 #1
    I am conducting some research into finding the force which a rotating link will exert.

    The link is actuated by a motor which provides 30Nm of torque. I need to find force in x,y,z directions


    Is the answer [Fx,Fy,Fz]=[tau/Px,tau/Py,tau/Pz]

    I'm a bit confused by the diagram. Is the orange thing solid? Or is it like a chain or rope that's getting wrapped up by a gear at A?
