Power of Conveyor 2#

content/public/009.Work/Power/Power of Conveyor 2/PowerofConveyer2.png

The conveyor above contains a slide plate below the belt, which is used for structure. This plate gives a coefficient of friction of \(\mu = {{ params_mu }}\) between the plate and the belt. The belt is then loaded with a load, with a weight density of \(W = {{ params_W }} \ \rm{lb/ft}\).
How much horsepower is required to run the belt at a velocity of \(v = {{ params_v }} \ \rm{ft/s}\) ? The belt is \(L = {{ params_L }} \ \rm{ft}\) long and angled at \(\theta = {{ params_theta }}^{\circ}\). Assume the load is constantly fed onto the belt and transitions smoothly. Assume the belt itself is massless.
