Problem: Design a bearing for a skateboard wheel.

Assume:        Infinite Life (LR= 9 x 107) Angular velocity of 525 rpm Radial Force of 1.5 kN; Thrust Force of 1.7 kN 90% reliability (Kr=1) Light to moderate impact ( Ka = 1.5) Radial Ball Bearing Design life of 30,000 hours

Calculations:  Life in revolutions: ⁄  For Fe:

Because the C required is 8.5 kN, the bore is 35mm, which means that this application is a L07, 207 and 307 radial ball bearing.
