### Answer any two question from Q2 (b) or Q2 (c)

2 (b) A 300mm dia. bar is turned at 45rev/min with depth of cut of 2mm and feed of
0.3mm/rev. The forces measured at the cutting tool point are
Cutting force = 1850N Feed force = 450N
Calculate
(1) power consumption
(2) specific cutting energy.
(7 marks)
2 (c) The following equation for tool life is given for a turning operation
