Fixing torque’s value is independent of the load torque.

(a) True

(b) False

This question was addressed to me in a national level competition.

This interesting question is from The Differential & Torques in Epicyclic Gear Trains in section Toothed Gearing & Gear Trains of Machine Kinematics

Right choice is (b) False

To elaborate: Fixing torque or the braking torque or the Holding torque generally represented by T3 has a value

T3 = -(T2 + T1)

therefore its value is dependent on the load torque.
