The figure depicts a band brake whose drum rotates

The figure depicts a band brake whose drum rotates counterclockwise at 200 rev/min. The drum diameter is 16 in and the band lining 3 in wide. The coefficient of friction is 0.20. The maximum lining interface pressure is 70 psi.
(a) Find the brake torque, necessary force P, and steady-state power.
(b) Complete the free-body diagram of the drum. Find the bearing radial load that a pair of straddle-mounted bearings would have to carry.
(c) What is the lining pressure p at both ends of the contact arc?
