Two transmission belts pass over sheaves welded to an axle supported by bearings at B and D. The sheave at A has a radius of 2.5 inches, and the sheave at C has a radius of 2 inches. Knowing that the system rotates at a constant rate, determine the tension T and the reactions at B and D. Assume that the bearing at D oes not exert any axial thrust and neglect the weights of the sheaves and axle. |
