c) 55.21×10_{6}N-mm

d) 45.89×10^{6}N-m

View Answer

Explanation: M

_{b}=P

_{p}[0.75lc+t+0.5l

_{1}]

=176700[0.75×120+90+0.5×265]

=55.21×10

^{6}N-mm

10. In the formula M_{b}=P_{p}[0.75l_{c}+t+0.5l_{1}], what is l_{1}?

a) Length of shaft

b) Length of bearing

c) Length of connecting rod

d) Length of crank

View Answer

Explanation: In the formula M

_{b}=P

_{p}[0.75l

_{c}+t+0.5l

_{1}], M

_{b}is the bending moment, l

_{c}is the length of the crankpin, t is the thickness, l

_{1}is the length of the bearing 1.

11. Does the crank pin act as a which beam inside crankshaft?

a) Simply supported

b) Cantilever

c) Overhanging

d) Roller supported

View Answer

Explanation: The crankpin acts as a cantilever beam inside crankshaft and subjected to maximum bending moment on the crankshaft.

12. When the crank web is subjected to stresses, bending stress acts on which plane?

a) Horizontal

b) Both horizontal and vertical

c) Vertical

d) normal

View Answer

Explanation: When the crank web is subjected to stresses, bending stress acts on Both horizontal and vertical planes. This bending stress is equally divided on both the planes.

13. In the formula M_{t}=P_{t}×r, what is P_{t}?

a) Vertical component

b) Tangential component

c) Horizontal component

d) Normal component

View Answer

Explanation: In the formula M

_{t}=P

_{t}×r, P

_{t}is the tangential component, M

_{t}is the torsional moment and r is the crank radius. To avoida torsional moment, torsional rigidity should be good.
