Variables Used
Coefficient of Friction- The Coefficient of Friction (μ) is the ratio defining the force that resists the motion of one body in relation to another body in contact with it. This ratio is dependent on material properties and most materials have a value between 0 and 1.
Angle of Wrap - Angle of Wrap is defined as the distance, expressed in degrees. (Measured in Radian)
Belt Tension in loose Side - Belt Tension in loose Side is defined as the tension of the belt in the loose side of the belt. (Measured in Newton)
Mass of Meter Length of Belt- Mass of Meter Length of Belt is the mass of 1-meter length of the belt simply mass per unit length of the belt.
Belt Velocity - Belt Velocity is defined as the velocity of the belt used in a belt drive. (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Coefficient of Friction: 0.2 --> No Conversion Required
Belt Tension in loose Side: 50 Newton --> 50 Newton No Conversion Required
Mass of Meter Length of Belt: 10 --> No Conversion Required
