Chairliftop

Thread moved from the technical forums, so no Homework Template is shown

Hello Everybody!

I am looking for some help in formulating an investigation topic relating to ski lifts. What measurable physics topics relate to ski lifts?

One idea I came up with how much downward pressure of riders on a chairlift would overcome the friction of the haul rope (the cable) on the bull wheel (the main wheel at the bottom and top terminals)? How would I go about calculating this?

Thank you so much in advance!
