If the safe working stress for the leather belt is 1.5 Mpa and density of leather is 1000 kg/m3 and thickness of belt is 10mm, determine the width of belt taking centrifugal tension into account.(10 marks) 4 (a) Briefly explain the static and dynamic balancing(4 marks) 4 (b) A 3.6 m long shaft carries three pulleys, two ends the third at the mid point. The two end pulleys have masses 79 kg and 40 kg with their radii 3mm and 5mm from axis of shaft respectively. The middle pulley has a mass of 50 kg with radius 8 mm. The pulley are so keyed to the shaft that the assembly is in static balance. The shaft rotates at 300 RPM in two bearings 2.4 m apart with equal overhangs on either side. Determine
