Time: 6 Minutes

Q1. The mechanism, which is an exact straight-line mechanism using lower pairs?
(a) Watt’s mechanism
(b) Grasshopper mechanism
(c) Robert’s mechanism
(d) Peaucellier’s mechanism

Q2. In a mechanism having 8 links, the number of instantaneous centres of rotation present are
(a) 28
(b) 56
(c) 15
(d) 0

Q3. The length of a flat plate is 2 m and width 50 cm is placed in a fluid stream at 50^o C blowing parallel to it. The convective heat transfer co-efficient of the fluid is 10 W/〖(m〗^2 K). The heat transfer takes place, if the plate is maintained at a temperature of 350^o C is
(a) 3 kW
(b) 4 kW
(c) 0.3 kW
(d) 30 kW

Q4. Resilience means
(a) Failure of material at loads less than at normal conditions

(d) Capacity of a material to absorb energy elastically

Q5. Maximum shear stress theory was postulated by ___.
(a) St. Venant
(b) Mohr
(c) Rankine
(d) Tresca

Q6. Which of the following is TRUE for factor of safety?
(a) Tensile stress/permissible stress
(b) Compressive stress/Ultimate stress
(c) Ultimate stress/Permissible stress
(d) Ultimate stress/Shear stress

### Solutions

S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. Peaucellier’s mechanism is an exact straight-line mechanism using lower pairs

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Center of rotation =C_2^8=(8×7)/2=28

S3. Ans(a)
Sol. by Newton’s law of cooling for convection heat transfer
Q=h A ∆T
Q=10×2×0.50×(350-50)
Q=3 kW

S4. Ans(d)
Sol.
Resilience – Capacity of a material to absorb energy elastically
Fatigue – Failure of material at loads less than at normal conditions
Stiffness – Resilience of the material to elastic deformation

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. maximum shear stress theory also known as Guest & Tresca theory because it is postulated by Tresca.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. factor of safety is defined as the ratio of failure stress (i.e. ultimate stress) to the working stress (i.e. permissible stress)
FOS=(Ultimate stress)/(Permissible stress)
