S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. damping is defined as restraining of vibratory motion,
Types of damping-
(1) Viscous damping-
It is encountered by bodies moving at moderate speed through liquid. This type of damping leads to resisting force proportional to velocity. The damping force,
▭(F_d=cx ̇ ) c→Viscous damping coefficient
x ̇→ Velocity at any instant
(2) Coulomb damping –
This type of damping arises from sliding of dry surfaces. The friction force is nearly constant and depends upon the nature of sliding surface and normal pressure b/w them as expressed by the equation of kinetic friction.
Where, μ= Coefficient of friction
N = Normal force
(3) Solid or structural damping –
This is due to the internal friction with in the material itself.
(4) Slip or interfacial damping –
Energy of vibration is dissipated by microscopic slip on the interfaces of machine parts in contact under fluctuating load.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. According to Drunkley’s method
When frequency of transvers vibration (f_n) is given
1/(f_n )^2 = 1/(f_n1 )^2 = 1/(f_n2 )^2
1/(f_n )^2 = 1/〖100〗^2 +1/〖200〗^2
1/(f_n )^2 =5/〖200〗^2
=89.44 Hz
OR ▭(f_n=5367 rpm)

S3. Ans (a)
Sol. All of the given forces act on the connecting rod but the major force that acts on the connecting rod is the force due to gas pressure.

S4. Ans (b)
Sol. We know, according to parallelogram law,
R^2=√(P^2+Q^2+2PQ.cosθ) …………….(1)
R = 25 kN
P = 100 kN
Q = 125 kN
Then, from equation (1)

S5. Ans(c)
Sol. strain rosettes are generally used for measurement of longitudinal strain.
A strain gauge rosette is a term for an arrangement of two or more strain gauges that are positioned closely to measure strains along different directions of the component under evaluation. Single strain gauges can only measure strain effectively in one direction, so the use of multiple strain gauges enables more measurements to be taken, providing a more precise evaluation of strain on the surface being measured.

S6. Ans(c)
Sol. stress- strain analysis is conducted to know the Mechanical properties
of materials.

S7. Ans(d)
Sol. given that
stress (σ) = 276 MPa
length (L) = 305 mm
Modulus of Elasticity = 110 GPa
we know that, the resultant elongation is
δl=(276×〖10〗^6×0.305)/(110×〖10〗^9 )
δl= 0.765 mm
δl= 0.77 mm

S8. Ans(a)
Sol. given that,
Initial diameter (d_i) = 12.8 mm
Final diameter (d_f) = 10.7 mm
Engineering stress (σ_e) = 460 MPa
True stress (σ_t) = ?
We know that,
σ_t/σ_e =A_i/A_f
σ_t=σ_e (A_i/A_f )
σ_t=σ_e (〖d_i〗^2/〖d_o〗^2 )
σ_t=460×(〖12.8〗^2/〖10.7〗^2 )
σ_t=658.27 MPa

S9. Ans (b)
Sol. It is a quick-break mechanism without intermediate state. Switching is obtained by the deformation of a spring or moving contact when the switch is operated.

S10. Ans (b)
Sol. Stone crushers, embossing presses and switches works on toggle mechanism. Mechanical advantage of toggle mechanism is infinite or very large.
