     radius of the pulley rim is 150 mm and the centre of gravity of the shoe lies at 120mm

     efficient of friction may be taken as 0.25 determine: 1. mass of the shoes, and 2. size

     clutch facing has a coefficient of friction of 0.4 and permissible stress of 209 KPa .   
     The clutch is engaged through 12 springs. Determine. The diameters of the clutch 
     facing, if the inner diameter is 0.8 times the outer. Find also the spring force of each 
     spring when the clutch is engaged.
