1. If a percentage of cobalt in Tungsten carbide tool increases, then toughness of tool will
a) Increase
b) Decrease
c) Remains Constant
d) First increase then decrease
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: With an increase in percentage of cobalt toughness increases. Carbides are very hard and have very good red hot hardness property and hence most suitable for machining of hard and brittle material.
