Q2. A centrifugal clutch is to be designed to transmit 15kW at 900 rpm. The shoes are four in
number and the speed at which the engagement begins is 3/4th of the running speed. The
inside radius of the pulley rim is 150 mm. Taking coefficient of friction as 0.25, find out
the mass and size of the shoes.
Q3. Discuss the different types of brakes giving at least one practical application for each
Q4. An open belt 100 mm wide connects two pulleys mounted on parallel shafts with their
centres 2.4 m apart. The diameter of the larger pulley is 450 mm and that of smaller
pulley is 300 mm. Coefficient of friction is 0.3 and the maximum stress in the belt is
limited to 14 N/mm width. If the larger pulley rotates at 120 rpm, find the maximum
power that can be transmitted.
Q5. Design a helical compression spring for a maximum load of 1000 N and deflection of
25mm taking Wahl's factor into consideration. Assume spring index as 5, maximum
permissible shear stress for spring wire as 420 MPa and modulus of rigidity as
84 kN/mm2.
Q6. a) Mention four important types of gears and discuss their applications.

b) Explain the phenomenon of interference in involute gears. What are the conditions to
be satisfied in order to avoid interference?
Q7. Select a single row deep groove ball bearing for a radial load of 4000 N and an axial load
of 5000 N, operating at a speed of 1600 rpm for an average life of 5 years at 10 hours per
day. Assume uniform and steady load.

NOTE : Disclosure of Identity by writing Mobile No. or Making of passing request on any
page of Answer Sheet will lead to UMC against the Student.
