Generally, the lower side is kept “Tight side” and upper side is kept as “Slack side” with the belt drives having small driving pulley and big driven pulley. Why ?

Power transmission in belt drive depends on angle of lap and frictional grip between belt and pulley. As slack side is at upper side angle of lap and grip increases.

A pulley is driven by the flat belt running at speed of......

Flat belt speed = V = 600 m/min = 600/60 m/sec = 10 m/sec;

Power transmitted = P = 4 kW ;

Coefficient of friction =µ = 0.3;

Angle of lap = θ =1600

Belt tension ratio = T1/ T2 = eµθ = e 0.3(160x π/180) = 2.31; T1/ T2 = 2.31;

T1= T2 x 2.311--------------------------------(1)

P = ( T1 - T2) x V ; --------------------------------(2)

P = ( T2 x 2.31- T2)x 10; Putting value of power

P = 4 kW 4 x1000 = ( T2 x 2.31 - T2)x 10;

T2 = 305.34 N

T1 = 705.34N
