1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What would be the effect on the following if the load torque is increased and the speed maintains constant: a) the tension in the tight side of the belt b) the tension in the slack side of the belt c) the power transmitted 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I believe I need to find a relationship between the torque T and the F1, F2 and power P. I will start with the easiest one which I believe is c). P=T*w If w is constant, then when the torque will increase, power will also increase. I have a problem with F1 and F2. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to create a relationship between the P and F1 and P and F2?
