Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to model a problem about rolling up a wire. I don't know how to go about setting it up to calculate the Torque required to climb at a given speed. Obviously coefficients of friction, normal forces, and weight will all play a roll but am hoping I can get a hand setting up the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ian
