The tension T in a belt passing round a pulley wheel and in contact with the pulley over an angle of θ radians is given by T=Toe^μθ
Where To and μ are constant. Experimental results obtained are:
T Newtons: 47.9 52.8 60.3 70.1 80.9
θ radians : 1.12 1.48 1.97 2.53 3.06
Determine approximate values of To and μ. Hence find the tension when θ is 2.25 radians and the value of θ when the tension is 50 Newtons.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks.
