SUMMARY

Belt drives are transmission devices that are used for transmitting power from one shaft to

another. The goal of this experiment was to find the coefficient of the belt. This can be done

by using the following equation:

T1

=e sin

T2

In this experiment, the manipulated variable were T and . The tensions was increased

gradually and the was changed from 30 until 150 with an interval of 30. The is fixed at

20. The belt is tightened gradually to measure five values of tensions of T1 and T2. The

tensions value are then used to find out the coefficient of the belt.

From the results, two graphs are plotted which are graph of T1 against T2 and graph of

ln(T1/T2) against the angle . From the graphs we can see both tensions increases linearly as

the belt is tightened. It is also can be concluded that as the angle increase the ratio of T1/T2

also increases. The coefficient of friction is found to be 0.018.

OBJECTIVES

To determine the coefficient of friction for V belt.

THEORY

To transfer power from one shaft to another belts or pelts are commonly used through pulleys

which are rotating at the same speed or at different speed. In this experiment the type of the

belt that will be used is V-belt. The V-belts have a trapezoidal shape. They are suitable for

short drives, such as when the shafts are at a short distance from each other. The angle for the

V-belt is usually 20-40.

Ratio of Tensions for Belt Drive

T2 = Tension of belt at the loose side

A small part of the belt which is PQ, which cover the angle at the centre of the pulley as in

Figure 1. The belt is in equilibrium state with these following forces :

Due to the small value of , sin /2 is almost equal to /2. This will yield :

(T*)/2 is considered negligible since the value of both of them are very small.

By resolving verticals forces, the following equation is obtained :

Since RN = T*,

Then both sides of equation will be integrated between the limits T 1 and T2, and from 0 to

respectively.

Set the two spring balance on both side readings at zero before experiment is started.

Set up the equipments as in Figure 2.

Attach the slack side T2 to the 30 peg.

DISCUSSION

The coefficient friction of V-belt in this experiment for all kind of 5 angles brings to almost

same value, which is 0.018

The graph of ln(T1/T2) against angle shows increase in linearity, but theres some decrease

from 1.57rad to 2.09rad may be due to some errors in conducting the experiment. Thus, it can

be relate that the higher the angle, the higher the ln(T1/T2).

In this experiment, there are some errors can occur while conducting it, like parallax error

while reading the spring balance. Other than that, the belt is having mass, the difficulty to

determine the pulley is moving with constant acceleration just by observation and without

having any technique to properly measure it. Moreover, the wire will also produce frictional

force with the contact surface of the pulley and also itself.

As to obtain a more accurate of the sliding coefficient of V-belt, the experiment should be

repeated to obtain an average reading. Then, avoid too much friction forces between the

pulley and the wire.

The advantages of V-belt are higher torque can be transmit by using with lesser width tension.

Furthermore, it can be used in areas with very less arc of contact of the belt.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, the tension T1 increases proportionally with T2. Both tensions

increased as the belt is tightened. It is also can be seen that as the angle increases, the ratio

of T1/T2 also increases. This is expected as it can be seen from the equation. The coefficient

of friction of the belt is 0.018.
