Mechanical EngineeringQ&A LibraryClutch Mechanism 8. In the clutch mechanism shown, two flat circular disks of radius R are mounted so that they can be brought into contact causing a net frictional force. The contact pressure in general depends on the distance from the center and in one specific case may be modeled buy P(r) = Poe-kr, where k is a constant and r is the distance from the center of the discs. The integral cR F = 2m " P(r)rdr gives the total contact force between the discs. Cross-section a. In your own words explain where this formula comes from.Start your trial now!
