pulley tensions

pulley tensions

pulley tensions

we have the following formula for calculating belt tensions in a pulley system. is it correct?

T1/T2 = e

T1 + T2= tension in belts
u' = co-efficient of friction/ 1/2 'V' belt angle for B    
                               section belt
y =  theta= angle of lap

what is e? is it the button on the calculator or another variable

RE: pulley tensions

Yes, It is the "button on the calculator".
e is log base 'e' e=2.7182
your equation should read T1/T2=e
