SOLUTION The pitch of the screw
P  5mm

To raise the thread by 10 mm the thread has to rotate 2 times The ratio of the bevel gears
18 8
2.25  2  4.5

 2.25

that is rotate the larger gear once the smaller gear will rotate 2.25 turns.

The handle must rotate 4.5 turns to raise the car 1.0 cm. Distance traveled:
1cm  0.01m d  0.01 m

Newton x m = Joule or Force x Distance. Calculate the work done by gravity:
Wg  ( F  sin ( ) )  d Wg  35  joule

Angle of incline from the horizontal:
  90  deg F  3500 N

Because we are working against gravity our work done is a negative number.

Efficiency of screw jack = 20% Therefore
20 100 35 x 100 20  35joule  175J

Total work = 175 J

Rotational work W = Rotational work
W  175J  = Torque θ = Angular distance moved by the torque (radians).   28.274   6.189 N  m 4.5  360 deg  1620  deg 1620deg  28.274

 

W 

The torque applied to the handle is 6.2 Nm
