I have a review question that I am not sure about the answer. The question goes like this:

"In comparison to single plate clutches, multidisk clutches are associated to which of the below notions?"

a) Linearly increased torque from identical axis force

b) Exponentially increased torque from linearly increased axial force

c) Exponentially increased torque from identical axial force

  • $\begingroup$ Total torque is shared over more surface area. Think about it. $\endgroup$
