Q6. The cone clutches have become obsolete because of
(a) Small cone angles
(b) Exposure to dirt and dust
(c) Difficulty in disengaging
(d) All of the above
Sol. The ability of material to resist softening at higher temp, is known as hot hardness.
Sol. Addition of nickel in steel increase the fatigue strength.
S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. A simple pitot tube measure stagnation pressure but a pitot static tube is used to measure dynamic pressure.
S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. Constant pressure lines diverge from left to right on Mollier diagram.
Mollier diagram is drawn between enthalpy (h) on y-axis and entropy (s) on x-axis.
The slope of constant pressure line on h-s curve is absolute temperature.
S5. Ans. (d)
Sol. we know that, the Stanton number is
Stanton number = (Nusselt number)/(Reynolds number ×prandtl number)
Stanton number = 2000/(20 × 10)
Stanton number = 10
S6. Ans (a)
Sol. For designing plate or disc clutch, we assume uniform wear theory because most of the clutches wear uniformly for most of their life cycle. Hence, designing of a clutch by considering uniform wear theory, will be cost effective and close to real life simulation of clutch.
