Question: qiii a flat belt is 6 in wide and 932...

Question details

QIII) A flat belt is 6 in wide and 9/32 in thick and transmits 15 hp. The pulley axes are parallel, in a horizontal plane, anu. 8 ft apart. The driving pulley has a diameter of 6 in and rotates at 1750 rpm such that the loose side of the belt is on top. T driven pulley is 18 in, in diameter. The weight of the belt material is 0.035 Ib/in. (a) Determine the tension in tight and slack sides of the belt if the coefficient of friction is 0.30. (b) What belt tensions would result if adverse conditions caused the coefficient of friction to drop to 0.20? Would the belt slip? 115 Markl
