# KEYS

1.) A 76.2 mm in diameter shafting of SAE 1040 grade, cold rolled, having A yield point in the key in 50 Ksi and with a 3/4 x 5 inches key. Compute the minimum yield point in the key in order to transmit the torque of the shaft. The factor safety to use is 2 and Ssy = 0.50 Ssy (ans. 47.120 ksi) 2.) A keyed sprocket delivers a torque of 778.8 N.m thru the shaft 54 mm OD. The key thickness is 1.5875 cm and the width is 1.11 cm. Compute the length of the same key. The permissible stress value of 60 Mpa for tension.(ans. 32 cm) 3.) A 76.2 mm diameter shafting of SAE 1040 grade cold rolled, having a yield point of 5o ksi and with a 3/4 x 3/4 x 5 in key. Compute the minimum yield point in the key in order transmit the torque of the shaft. The factor safety to use is 2 and Ssy = 0.5 Sy. (ans. 47.21 ksi) 4.) A keyed gears delivers a torque of 912.4 Nm thru its shaft of 63.5 mm outside diameter. If the key has thickness or 15.875 mm and width of 11.1125, find the length of the key. Assume the permissible stress values of 61.2 Mpa and tension at 99.8 Mpa.(ans.42.22 mm) 5.) A metric M4 x 15 square key used with a 16 mm shaft, if the allowable shearing stress is 50 Mpa. How much torque can the assembly handle? The rotational speed of the shaft 600 rpm.(ans.0.24 n-m) 6.) A flat key is to be designed for 75 mm diameter shaft which will transmit 150 KW at 400 rpm. If allowable shearing stress is 200 Mpa and key width is 15 mm, determine the length of key.(ans.31.83) 7.) A rectangular key is used in a pulley to transmit 100 KW at 1000 rpm shaft diameter. Determine the force required to remove the shaft from the hub if friction is diameter. 0.4(ans. 30.55 kn) 8.) A 7/16 in height x 3 in length flat keyed to a 2 inches diameter shaft. Determine the torque in the key if bearing stress allowable is 25 Ksi. (ans. 16,406.25 in-lb) 9.) A rectangular key used in a pulley connected to a line shaft at 15 KW and 600 rpm, if shearing of key is 230 Mpa, determine the force acting on key length if the key width one-fourth of shaft diameter and key length is 1 inch.(ans. 145 kn) 10.) A square key is to be used in a 40 mm diameter shaft and that will developed a 2 KN-m torque. If bearing stress of the key is 400 Mpa, determine the cross-sectional dimension of square key to be used if key length is 30 mm.(ans. 277.77)
