• 1. For toggle mechanism as shown below, the slider D is constrained to move along horizontal direction. The crank rotates at 180 rpm. The dimension of various links are as follows: OA = 180 mm; CB = 240 mm; AB = 360 mm; BD = 540 mm. For the given configuration determine the velocity of the slider, angular velocity and angular acceleration of links AB, BC and BD. Also determine the linear acceleration of the slider D.

(or)

• 2. In the mechanism shown below the crank OA rotates at a constant speed equal to 20 rpm anticlockwise and gives motion to the sliding blocks B and D. The dimensions of various links are OA = 300 mm; AB = 1200 mm, BC = 450 mm and CD = 450 mm. For the given configuration, determine: Velocities of sliders B and D, Angular velocity of link CD, linear acceleration of D, Angular acceleration of CD.

• 3. A cam with a minimum radius of 25 mm, rotating in CW direction with a uniform speed of 100

rpm is to be designed to give the motion for a roller follower as follows: To raise through 50 mm during 120° rotation of cam with SHM, Fully raised through next 30°, To lower during next 60° with UAUR, Dwell for the remaining period. Draw the profile of the cam when the line of stroke of

the follower is offset by 15 mm from the axis of the camshaft. (or)

4. A cam with a minimum radius of 25 mm, rotating CW at uniform speed of 300 rpm is to he designed to give motion to a flat faced mushroom follower as detailed below: To raise through a distance of 25 mm in 120° rotation of the cam, To remain at rest for the next 30°, To lower during further 120° rotation of the cam, To remain in the same position during rest of the revolution. The raising of the follower takes place with cycloidal motion and the lowering with UAUR. However, the uniform acceleration is 2/3rd of the uniform retardation. Draw the displacement diagram and profile of the cam. 5. The following data are for a disc cam mechanism with roller follower: Minimum radius of the cam = 35 mm, Lift of the follower = 40 mm, Offset of the follower = 10 mm right, Roller diameter = 15 mm, Cam rotation angles are as mentioned below: During ascent = 120°, Dwell = 80°, During descent = 80°, Dwell = 80°. Cam rotates in clockwise direction and the follower

motion is simple harmonic during both ascent and descent. Draw the displacement diagram of the follower and indicate the relevant data. Draw the cam profile and indicate the relevant data.

• 6. Draw a cam profile for operating the exhaust valve of an oil engine. It is required to give equal

uniform acceleration and retardation during opening and closing of the valve each of which corresponds to 60° of cam rotation. The valve must remain in the fully open position for 20° of cam rotation. The valve is 37.5 mm and the least radius of the cam is 40 mm. The follower is provided with a roller of radius 20 mm and its line of stroke passes through the axis of the cam.

• 7. An epicyclic gear train is shown in the below figure. How many revolutions do the arm makes?

(a). When A makes one revolution in CW and D makes 1/2 revolution in the opposite sense, (b). When A makes one revolution in CW and D remains stationary, (c). The number of teeth in gears A

and D are 40 and 90 respectively.

(or)

• 8. In an epicyclic gear train, an annular wheel A having 54 teeth meshes with a planet wheel B

which gears with a sun wheel C, the wheels A and C being rotates about the axis of the wheels A and C. If the wheel A makes 20 rpm in a CW sense and the arm rotates at 100 rpm in the

anticlockwise direction and the wheel C has 24 teeth, determine the speed and direction of rotation of wheel C.
