band brakes

A band brake is installed on a drum rotating at 250rpm and a diameter of 900mm. The angle of contact is 1.5pi radians and one end of the brake band is fasted to a fixed pin while the other end to the brake artm is 150m from the fixed pin. The coefficient of friction is 0.25 and the straight brake arm is 1000mm long and is placed perpendicular to the diameter bisecting the angle of contact. The minimum force in Newtons applied at the end of the brake arm necessary to stop the drum if 60 kw is being absorbed.
