Weight driven pendulum & torque?

  1. Jun 5, 2013 #1
    Need some help understanding if torque changes.

    Does lengthening the pendulum affect the torque on the other gears (purple, green, and plum)?
    In other words is torque inversely proportional to speed still applicable here?

    thanks

    Hi, are you using a over run clutch on the pendulum?
