4. The two links OA and OB are connected by a pin joint at O. If the link OA turns with angular velocity ω1 rad/s in the clockwise direction and the link OB turns with angular velocity ω2 rad/s in the anti-clockwise direction, then the rubbing velocity at the pin joint O is
a) ω12.r
b) (ω12)r
c) (ω12)r
d) (ω12)2r
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Consider two links OA and OB connected by a pin joint at O
Let ω1 = Angular velocity of the link OA or the angular velocity of the point A with respect to O.
ω2 = Angular velocity of the link OB or the angular velocity of the point B with respect to O, and
r = Radius of the pin.
According to the definition,
Rubbing velocity at the pin joint O
= (ω1 – ω2) r, if the links move in the same direction
= (ω1 + ω2) r, if the links move in the opposite direction

5. In the above question, if both the links OA and OB turns in clockwise direction, then the rubbing velocity at the pin joint O is
a) ω12.r
b) (ω12)r
c) (ω12)r
d) (ω12)2r

Let ω1 = Angular velocity of the link OA or the angular velocity of the point A with respect to O.
ω2 = Angular velocity of the link OB or the angular velocity of the point B with respect to O, and
r = Radius of the pin.
According to the definition,
Rubbing velocity at the pin joint O
= (ω1 – ω2) r, if the links move in the same direction
= (ω1 + ω2) r, if the links move in the opposite direction

6. ABCD is a four bar mechanism in which AB = 310mm and CD = 450mm. AB and CD are both perpendicular to the fixed link AD. If the velocity of B at this condition is v. Then the velocity of C is
a) v
b) 2/3 v
c) 3/2 v
d) 9/4 v
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Velocity at C = CD/AB x velocity at B
= 450/310 x v
= 3/2 v
