Example 2-8 : The carbon – steel countershaft shown in Fig. 2-25 is 25 mm in diameter and supports two
V-belt pulleys. The countershaft runs at 1100 rpm. The belt tension on the slack side of pulley A is 15
percent of the tension on the tight side. Assume the shaft has a uniform diameter of 25mm.
Assume pulley labeled with letters C & D is a driven pulley transferring power to the shaft.
a) What amount of torque is transferred by the shaft between the pulleys?
b) draw a torque diagram
c) Compute the angle of twist of the shaft between the two pulleys as a function of G.
d) Find the maximum torsional shear stress in the shaft
