1.a) What is the significance of gear in the transmission of motion?
b) Explain why the cycloid and involute curves are used in designing
the gear tooth profiles.
2.a) Describe the failure theories of a gear shaft.

b) A pair of straight teeth spur gears is to transmit 20 KW when the pinion rotates at 350 rpm. The velocity ratio is 1 : 3. The allowable static stresses for the pinion and gear materials are 120 MPa and 100 MPa respectively. The pinion has 15 teeth and its face width 4 times the module. Determine module, face width, pitch circle diameters of both the pinion and the gear from the stand points of strength only, taking into consideration the effect of the dynamic loading.

The tooth form factor y can be taken as

3.a) What are advantages of helical gears over spur gears?

b) A pair of helical gears with 300 helix angle is used to transmit 15 KW at 1000 rpm of the pinion. The velocity ratio is 4 :1. Both the gears are to be made of hardened steel of static strength of 100 N/mm2. The gears are 200 stub and the pinion is to have 24 teeth. The face width may be taken as 14 times the module. Find the module and face width from the stand point of strength and check the gears for wear.
