## Radius of Brake Drum When Torque Absorbed by the Brake is Given Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
radius_of_drum = Torque/(Tension in the tight side of the band-Tension on loose Side)
r = τ/(T1-P2)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Torque - Torque is described as the turning effect of force on the axis of rotation. In brief, it is a moment of force. It is characterized by τ. (Measured in Newton Meter)
Tension in the tight side of the band - Tension in the tight side of the band is described as the pulling force transmitted axially by the means of a string, a cable, chain etc. (Measured in Newton)
Tension on loose Side - Tension on loose Side is the tension present in the loose side of the Band in the Band Brakes. (Measured in Newton)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Torque: 50 Newton Meter --> 50 Newton Meter No Conversion Required
Tension in the tight side of the band: 12 Newton --> 12 Newton No Conversion Required
Tension on loose Side: 50 Newton --> 50 Newton No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
r = τ/(T1-P2) --> 50/(12-50)
Evaluating ... ...
r = -1.31578947368421
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-1.31578947368421 Meter -->-1315.78947368421 Millimeter (Check conversion here)
-1315.78947368421 Millimeter <-- Radius of the drum
