Sol. For a body to be in motion its inclination should be more than the angle of friction. Angle of friction is the limiting angle at which body is at verge of motion.
Sol. The friction between surface of stationary bodies is known as static friction.
S5. Ans (b)
For a tapered bar of dia. varying from d_1 to d_2 and length L ,elongation due to load P is
δ_1=4PL/(πEd_1 d_2 )
For a bar of uniform dia. d and length L ,elongation due to load P is
d=√(d_1 d_2 )
S6. Ans (b)
Sol. Outer radius is considered to calculate stress in hollow shaft subjected to torsion.
S7. Ans (a)
Sol. We know that Power of a rotating shaft (P)=2πNT/60…………..(1)
Here, N=Rotation speed in RPM of shaft
T=mean resisting torque of shaft
But we know that if maximum shear stress (τ) remains constant for a particular material.
So, τ=16T/(πd^3 )……………….(2)
From equation (1) and (2)
S8. Ans (b)
We know from Bending equation,
Moment of resistance (M_t)∝Section modulus (Z)
Section modulus for square section (Z_1)=d^3/6
Section modulus for lateral square section (Z_2)=d^4/12 X √2/d
Ratio of Moment of resistance for square and lateral square section M_(t_1 )/M_(t_2 ) =Z_1/Z_2 =(d^3/6)/(d^4/12 X √2/d)=√2
S9. Ans (c)
Sol. Train value=1/(Speed ratio)
S10. Ans (d)
Sol. Rim type flywheel is preferred over disc type flywheel for same masses of flywheels because high mass moment of inertia of rim type flywheel leads to high energy storage capacity of flywheel.
