Unformatted text preview: the spring is 185mm. When in place with the clutch engaged, its length is 130mm. Assuming 10 pairs of contact surfaces and the motor runs at 1200 rpm and coefficient of friction as 0.15, find the power in terms of kW that the clutch can transmit. Let the spring modulus G = 80 GPa. 2. A disk clutch having an outside diameter of 32 cm and an inside diameter of 12.7cm is connected to an engine that turns at 750 rpm. The coefficient of friction is 0.6 while the pressure between the friction surfaces is 2 kg f /cm 2 . Compute the force on the clutch pedal necessary to disengage the clutch disc from the engine....
