1. (a) Define free body diagram, Transmissibility of a force and resultant of a force.
(b) Two identical rollers, each of weight 100 N, are supported by an inclined plane and a vertical
wall as shown in Figure1. Assuming smooth surfaces, find the reactions induced at the points of
support A, B and C.

Figure 1:

## 2. (a) Define the following:

i. Friction
ii. Angle of friction
iii. Limiting friction
iv. Cone of friction
(b) A ladder 5 m long and of 250 N weight is placed against a vertical wall in a position where its
inclination to the vertical is 300 . A man weighing 800 N climbs the ladder. At what position
will he induce slipping? The co-efficient of friction for both the contact surfaces of the ladder viz.
with the wall and the floor is 0.2.
3. (a) Obtain the conditions for the maximum power transmitted by a belt from one pulley to another.
(b) A shaft running at 100 r.p.m drives another shaft at 200 r.p.m and transmits 12 kW. The belt is
100 mm wide and 12 mm thick and = 0.25. The distance between the shafts is 2.5 meters and
the diameter of the smaller pulley is 500 mm.
Calculate the stress in
i. An open belt
ii. A crossed belt, connecting the two pulleys.
4. (a) State and prove parallel axis theorem.
(b) Find the centroid of the shaded lamina shown in Figure2.

Figure 2:

5. Derive the expression for the moment of inertia of a cylinder length l, radius r and density w about
longitudinal centroidal axis and about the centroidal transverse axis.
6. (a) A train is traveling at a speed of 60 km/hr. It has to slow down due to certain repair work on
the track. Hence, it moves with a constant retardation of 1 km/hrper second until its speed is
reduced to 15 km/hr. It then travels at a constant speed of for 0.25 km/hr and accelerates at 0.5
km/hr per second until its speed once more reaches 60 km/hr. Find the delay caused.
(b) The motion of a particle in rectilinear motion is defined by the relation
s = 2t3 9t2 + 12t 10 where s is expressed in metres and t in seconds. Find
i. the acceleration of the particle when the velocity is zero
ii. the position and the total distance traveled when the acceleration is zero.
7. If Wa :Wb :Wc is in the ratio of 3:2:1 , find the accelerations of the blocks A, B, and C. Assume that
the pulleys are weightless. {As shown in the Figure3}.

Figure 3:

8. The weight of an empty railway wagon is 240 KN on loading it with goods weighing 320KN, its springs
get compressed by 80mm.
(a) calculate its natural period of vibration when
i. empty and
