A caster is a wheel that is attached to the bottom of a larger object, enabling it to be moved easily.

Casters are used in a variety of applications, from furniture and industrial carts to medical equipment and automotive tools. The weight of a caster is critical in determining the load capacity and mobility of the object it supports.

Caster weight calculation is essential in ensuring that the caster can handle the intended load without failing or causing undue stress on the object.

The weight of a caster is influenced by factors such as the material (e.g., steel, rubber, or plastic), the size of the wheel, the design of the caster, and any additional features like brakes or swivel mechanisms.

Caster weight, CW_{(kg)} in kilograms is calculated by dividing the total weight, W_{(kg)} in kilograms and number of casters, C.

Caster weight, CW_{(kg)} = W_{(kg)} / C

CW_{(kg)} = caster weight in kilograms, kg.

W_{(kg)} = total weight in kilograms, kg.

C = number of casters.

__Caster Weight Calculation:__

- A heavy-duty industrial cart weighs 800 kg and is supported by four casters. Calculate the weight each caster supports.

Given: W_{(kg)} = 800kg, C = 4.

Caster weight, CW_{(kg)} = W_{(kg)} / C

CW_{(kg)} = 800 / 4

CW_{(kg)} = 200kg.

- A piece of medical equipment weighs 1200 lbs and each caster can support a maximum weight of 300 lbs. Calculate the minimum number of casters required.

Given: W_{(kg)} = 1200kg, CW_{(kg)} = 300kg.

Caster weight, CW_{(kg)} = W_{(kg)} / C

C = W_{(kg)} / CW_{(kg)}

C = 1200 / 300

C = 4.
