Q1. In the preliminary design of a speed governor for a hoist, the two spheres of equalmass
s
m
slide along the horizontal rotating rod of diameter
R
and the mass of rod is
m
.The initial distance from the rotating axis is
L
, rotating freely at an angular velocity of
o
ω
, as shown in Figure Q1.a. Consider the rod and model it as a cylinder of length
L
and mass
m
. Derive theequation for the mass moment of inertia about the y-y axis:[10 marks] b. After the spheres are released they move to the ends of the rod. Determine anexpression relating the initial angular velocity

to the final angular velocity
ω
, after the spheres are released and fixed at the ends of the rod at a distance 2L from the y-yaxis.[10 marks]c. Given the mass of each sphere is 5kg, diameter of rod is 25mm,

Q2.A pipe manufacturer produces short lengths of seamless thick-walled pipes of externaldiameter of 250mm with a wall thickness of 25mm. In the packaging process, one sectionof pipe is transferred to a lower floor at a single time by rolling on an incline plane of 15ºfrom a vertical height of 3m.a.
