Machine Kinematics Internship Test


Intern has to take Machine Kinematics internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Machine Kinematics topic.

1. A body in motion will be subjected to coriolis acceleration when that body is
(A) in plane rotation with variable velocity
(B) in plane translation with variable velocity
(C) in plane motion which is a resultant of plane translation and rotation
(D) restrained to rotate while sliding over another body
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: When a point on one link is sliding along another rotating link, such as in quick return motion mechanism, then the coriolis component of the acceleration must be calculated.

2. Rectilinear motion of piston is converted into rotary by
(A) cross head
(B) slider crank
(C) connecting rod
(D) gudgeon pin
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: In single slider crank chain rotary motion is converted into reciprocating motion.

3. When a particle moves with a uniform velocity, then dv/dt will be
(A) infinitely small
(B) zero
(C) infinitely great
(D) none of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: When a particle moves with a uniform velocity, then dv/dt will be zero. In other words, there will be no tangential acceleration; but the particle will have only normal or radial or centripetal acceleration.

4. The coefficient of restitution for inelastic bodies is
(A) zero
(B) between zero and one
(C) one
(D) more than one
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The process of regaining the original shape is called restitution. Inelastic bodies can not regain their original shapes. Therefore their coefficient of restitution is zero.

5. A ball is dropped from the same height upon various flat surfaces. For the same collision time, impulses are smaller when the most bouncing take place.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Since being dropped from the same height, the balls will be moving with the same pre-collision velocity (assuming negligible air resistance). Upon collision with the ground, the velocity will have to be reduced to zero – that is, the ball will cease moving downwards. This decrease in velocity constitutes the first portion of the velocity change. If the ball bounces, then there is an additional velocity change sending the ball back upwards opposite the original direction. Thus, for the same collision time, bouncing involves a greater velocity change, a greater momentum change, and therefore a greater impulse.
