    The frictional torque determined by uniform pressure theory is greater than torque determined by uniform wear theory

    In uniform pressure theory, intensity of pressure is distributed over all the area in contact.
    Therefore, p = constant

    In uniform wear theory, the intensity of pressure varies at different radii and the product of p and r is assumed to be constant.
    It is represented by p.r = constant
