Pitch circle radius of wheel E 0.0875 ...(∴ Torque on wheel E = Torque on shaft Y ) Tangential force between wheels B and C We know that the input torque on shaft X or on wheel A = PX × 60 7500 × 60 = = 143 N-m 2π N X 2π × 500 ∴ Fixing torque on the fixed wheel C = Torque on wheel E – Torque on wheel A = 15 076 – 143 = 14 933 N-m = 14.933 kN-m 474 l Theory of Machines Pitch circle radius of wheel C, m × TC 3.5 × 150 = = 262.5 mm = 0.2625 m 2 2 Tangential force between wheels B and C rC = = Fixing torque on wheel C 14.933 = = 57 kN Ans. 0.2625 rC EXERCISES 1. A compound train consists of six gears. The number of teeth on the gears are as follows : Gear : A B C D E F No. of teeth : 60 40 50 25 30 24 The gears B and C are on one shaft while the gears D and E are on another shaft. The gear A drives gear B , gear C drives gear D and gear E drives gear F. If the gear A transmits 1.5 kW at 100 r.p.m. and the gear train has an efficiency of 80 per cent, find the torque on gear F.
