B.E./B.Tech. DEGREE EXAMINATION,Third Semester Mechanical EngineeringME 232 — KINEMATICS OF MACHINES(Common to Mechatronics Engineering)Time : Three hours Maximum : 100 marksInstructions : 1. Answer ALL the questions.2. Write brief procedure for graphical constructions.3. Sketches should be drawn neatly.4. Answers without units and with wrong units will carryless marks.5. Symbols used should be explained atleast once in eachsolution.6. Answers without writing the relevant equations andequations without substituting the data will carry ZEROmarks.PART A — (10 ? 2 = 20 marks)1. How many inversions are possible from a four–bar kinematic chain? Name them based on their input–output motions.2. What are the three conditions to obtain a four–bar crank–rocker mechanism?3. Sketch the Geneva wheel indexing mechanism and state its application.4. Distinguish normal component of acceleration and tangential component of acceleration.5. State the advantages of cam mechanisms over linkage mechanisms.6. Briefly write about undercutting in cam mechanisms.7. State the relationship between circular pitch and the module.8. Briefly write about reverted gear train with suitable sketch.9. State the laws of dry friction.10. The coefficient of friction between the belt and the pulley in a belt drive is 0.3. The angle of lap is165?. If the tension on the tight side is 3000 N, determine the tension on the slack side.PART B — (5 ? 16 = 80 marks)11. (i) Define transmission angle. Sketch a drag–link mechanism in maximumtransmission angle and minimum transmission angle positions. (4)(ii) Define kinematic inversion. Describe in detail with neat sketches an elliptic trammel. (6)(iii) Design a four–bar crank rocker quick return mechanism for the following data : Rocker swingangle = 90?, Time ratio = 1.25 and output link length = 60 mm. (6)12. (a) (i) How will you determine the magnitude and direction of the CoriolisAcceleration vector? (2)(ii) In a four–bar mechanism ABCD, the link lengths in mm are asfollows : Input AB = 25, coupler BC = 85, output CD = 50 and frame AD = 60. The angle between theframe and the input is 100?measured anti–clockwise. The velocity of point B is 1.25 m/sec inthe clockwise direction. Sketch the mechanism and determine thevelocity and acceleration of the mid–point of the link BC. Also, findthe angular velocity and angular accelerations of the links BCand CD. (14)Or (b) (i) State and prove the ARONHOLD–KENNEDY theorem involvinginstantaneous centres. (5)(ii) State the reasons for velocity and acceleration analysis. (3)(iii) Derive the analytical expressions to determine the angular positionof the coupler and the angular position of the output link of a four
