(3) Assume data wherever required.
(4) Figures to the right indicate full marks.
1 (a) What are the free body diagrams of a mechanism?(5 marks) 1 (b) For a mechanism shown in fig .Q1(b) find the required input torque for the static equilibrium. The length OA and AB are 250 mm and 650 mm respectively. F=500N.

The press is provided with a flywheel that rotates at a maximum speed of 225 RPM. The radius of gyration of the flywheel is 0.5m. The press punches 720 holes per hour, each punching operation takes two seconds and requires 15 kN-m energy. Find the power of the motor and the minimum mass of the flywheel if speed of the same is not to fall below 200 RPM.(14 marks) 3 (a) Derive an equation to calculate the centrifugal tension in flat belt drive.(5 marks) 3 (b) Determine the width of a 9.75 mm thick belt required to transmit 15 kW from a motor running at 900 RPM. The diameter of the driving pulley of the motor is 300 mm. The driven pulley runs at 300 RPM and distance between centres of two pulleys is 3mts. The density of leather is 1000 kg/m3. The maximum allowable stress in leather is 2.5 Mpa. The coefficient of friction between leather and pulley is 0.3. assume open belt drive drive and neglect slip in belt drive.(15 marks) 4 A shaft is supported in bearings 1.8 meter apart and projects 0.45 meter beyond bearings at each end. The shaft cries three pulley one at each and at middle of its length. The mass of end pulleys 48 kg and 20 kg and their centre of gravity are 15 mm and 12.5 mm respectively from the shaft axis. The centre pulley has the mass of 56 kg and its centre of gravity is 15 mm from shaft axis. If the pulley are so arranged as to give static balance, determine i) The relative angular position of the pulleys. ii) And dynamic forces produced on the bearing when the shaft rotates at 300 RPM.(20 marks) 5 (a) Define primary unbalanced force and secondary unbalanced force for a reciprocating engine mechanism.(4 marks) 5 (b) The firing order in a six cylinder four stroke inline engine is 1-4-2-6-3-5. The piston stroke is 100 mm and length of each connecting rod is 200 mm. The pitch distance between cylinder centre lines are 100mm, 100mm, 150 mm,100 mm, and 100mm respectively. The reciprocating mass per cylinder is 1 kg and engine runs at 300 RPM. Determine the output of primary and secondary forces and couples on the engine, taking a plane midway between the cylinders 3 and 4 as reference plane.(16 marks) 6 (a) Establish the relationship between speed and height of a watt Governor.(4 marks) 6 (b) In a portor governor the upper and lower arms are each 250mm long and pivoted on the aix of rotations. The mass of each rotating ball is 3 kg and mass of the sleeve is 20 kg. The sleeve is in its lowest positions when the arms are inclined at 30° to giovernor axis. The lift of the sleeve is 36 mm. Find the force of friction at the sleeve, if the speed at the moment it rises from the lowest position is equal to the speed at the moment it falls from the highest position. Also find the range of speed of the governor.(16 marks) 7 (a) With neat sketches explain the effect of gyroscope couple on steering, pitching and rolling of ship.(6 marks) 7 (b) A rear engine automobile is travelling along a track of 100 meters mean radius. Each of four road wheel has a moment of inertia of 2.5 kg/m2 and an effective diameter of 0.6m. The rotating parts of the engine have a moment of inertia of 1.2 kg-m2. The engine axis is parallel to rear axle and the crank shaft rotate in the same sense as the road wheels. The ratio of engine speed to back axle speed is 3:1. the automobile has a mass of 1600 kg and has its centre of gravity 0.5m above road level. The width of track of vehicle is 1.5m. Determine the limiting speed of the vehicle around the curve for all the four wheels to maintain contact with road surface. Assume that the road surface is not cambered and centre of gravity of the automobile lies centrally with respect to four wheels.(14 marks) 8 For a symmetrical tangent cam operating a roller follower, the least radius of cam is 30mm and roller radius is 15 mm. The angle of accent is 60°, the total lift is 15 mm and speed of the camshaft is 300 RPM. Calculate : i) Principle dimensions of the cam (i.e . the distance between the cam center and rose centre, nose radius and angle of contact of cam, with straight flank). ii)Acceleration of the follower at beginning of the lift, where the roller just touches the nose and the apex of circular nose. Assume that is no dwell between ascent and descent.(20 marks)
