Question

Part A.

Compute the torque developed by an industrial motor whose output is 175
kW at an angular speed of 5000rev/min.

Part B
A drum with negligible mass, 0.600 m in diameter, is attached to the motor shaft, and the power output of the motor is used to raise a weight hanging from a rope wrapped around the drum. How heavy a weight can the motor lift at a constant speed?

Part C
At what constant speed will the weight rise?

Step 1

PART A

Given that the power of the motor is 175kW, and the angular speed is 5000rev/min. The expression for the torque of a motor in terms of its power output and the angular speed is given in equation (1) below.

Step 2

Substitute 175kW for P, and 5000rev/min for ω in equation (1) to find the torque.

Step 3

PART B

Torque can be expressed as the product of the force and the moment arm. Here the moment arm is ...
