Hi! I need to move a shaft of 25 Kg over low friction ballbearings in a rectilinear fashion along its axis.

Considering a low co-eff of friction let us say that the force required is 35KgF or 350 N.

I have a motor delivering some amount of torque say Y Ncm.

Let the radius of the shaft be X

Now how do I compute the force that the torque would produce when applied on the head of the shaft.

Is there a formula that can be used here. I tried searching google but I never could understand how to interpret torque in terms of Force applied.

I understand that it is the basic engineering fundamentals but I am an electrical-electronics engineer and know a little mechanical but here I am stuck.

Please let me know.

If the question posted here is against the regulations of the forum please let me know that as well...
