      Hello All!

      I have a motor driving an eccentric arm which drives a shaft that pushes a plate back and forth.

      The motor is 3HP, the RPM is 1725, the plate moves a total of 1.75"

      I need to find the force of the plate as it moves out.


      I am thinking if I get torque from the HP and the RPM I'm heading in the right direction

      Thoughts?

      Just a little lost in what is being asked at the moment, you say in the title Piston Force based on Horse Power, but then change direction and ask about a force on a plate?

      Maybe a diagram would help?
