Physics has never been my strong point... I have a task to size a motor. The question is: Based on information below, how do I calculate required motor torque to accelerate a mass with the information below? Please explain the formulas and where they originate from. I understand how to calculate the force required. I don't understand how I compute the required torque to achieve this force.
Motion Direction: Horizontal - Perpendicular to gravity Mechanics: Ballscrew & Linear Slide mechanism. (W) Weight of Load to move: 100KG (D) Distance load should move: 1 m (A) Speed load should move: .04 m/s (C) Coef of Friction of Mechanism: .003 (p) all Screw Pitch: 2.75 mm (d) Ball Screw Dia: 20mm (T) Min motor torque required: ?
*Please arbitrarily choose variables for any missing information and declare them in your post.
Thank you for your time.
