You are told that the radius changes with time. Clearly the radius is the common link between changes to thes evariables and changes with time (the question) So what do you know (mathematically) about the link between radius and these quantities?

 Oct 1st 2018, 04:48 AM #5 Member   Join Date: Apr 2017 Location: Turkey Posts: 46 It is not homework , it is just question which i would like to solve it and i am not student right now , my age is 44 and i have graduated from university since more than 20 years ago and i am trying to solve these questions just for fun because i love physics , any way thanks for your advice . Is there any one can help me to make a relationship between the Torque and time ? i will be thankful Best regards
 Oct 1st 2018, 05:26 AM #6 Senior Member     Join Date: Jun 2016 Location: England Posts: 929 You need to relate the rotational rate of the tape reel to the speed of the tape passing the read heads and the radius of the tape on the reel. Razi likes this. __________________ ~\o/~
 Oct 2nd 2018, 12:49 AM #7 Member   Join Date: Apr 2017 Location: Turkey Posts: 46 Dear Woody Thanks for replay , i have tried to relate these quantities but i failed , there are too many variables changing at the same time , angular velocity , radius of the reel , linear velocity of the reel ,and also we have two reels in the tape , so i think we need to model this problem as a differential equation and then solve it , but i am still missing something , any idea for help ? Best Regards

All that is needed is the relationship between angular velocity and radius, and the relationship between torque and radius. the tape speed is constant, nothing more is needed than that. The second reel, for example, is irrelevant (to the question being answered) This is essentially the same as a gear wheel problem. __________________ ~\o/~
