The SMT-TM-05 experimental unit illustrates the laws for forming the equilibrium of
moments in static systems. The relations between wheel diameter, moment and
circumferential force are demonstrated. Two pulleys with different diameters are mounted
on a steel shaft, which is itself mounted on ball bearings. Weights can be hung on the cables,
making it possible to represent different load cases acting on two pulleys with different
diameters. The forces can be varied using weights until equilibrium is reached.
