    A spur gear has 48 teeth with a diametral pitch of 8 and a pressure angle of 20 deg. The face width is 0.75 inches. If the gear is transmitting 25 HP at 250 rpm, what is the tangential force?

    Solution Preview

    The design tangential tooth load is obtained from the power transmitted and the pitch line velocity by using the following relation;
    WT = (P/v)Cs..........................................................................................(1)
    where WT= Permissible tangential tooth load (N)
    P =Power transmitted (watts)
    v= Pitch line velocity (m/s) = 3.14 ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution contains detailed and yet simple step-by-step information on calculating the tangential tooth load of a spur gear based on the power transmitted.
