QUESTION: 2

Solution:
QUESTION: 3

### In the case of a flywheel, the maximum fluctuation of energy is the

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

A spring controlled governor is found unstable. It can be made stable by

Solution:

A spring controlled governor can be made stable by decreasing the spring stiffness.

QUESTION: 5

Consider the following parameters:

1. Limit of peripheral speed
2. Limit of centrifugal stress
3. Coefficient of fluctuation of speed
4. Weight of the rim

Which of these parameters are used in the calculation of the diameter of fly wheel rim?

Solution:

Limit of centrifugal stress is not considered.

QUESTION: 6

Which one .of the following statement is correct?

A governor will be stable if the radius of rotation of the balls

Solution:
QUESTION: 7

What is the value of the radius of gyration of disc type flywheel as compared to rim type flywheel for the same diameter?

Solution:

QUESTION: 8

The sensitivity of an isochronous governor is

Solution:

sensitivity = α.

QUESTION: 9

For minimizing speed fluctuations of an engine as a prime mover, it must have

Solution:
QUESTION: 10

The nature of the governors is shown by the graph between radius (r) of rotation and controlling force (F). Which of the following is an isochronous governor?

Solution:
QUESTION: 11

Match List-I with List-II and select the correct answer using the codes given below the Lists:

Solution:
QUESTION: 12

A Hartnell governor has its controlling force F given by

F = p + qr
Where, is the radius of the balls and p and q are constants.
The governor becomes isochronous when

Solution:

For isochronous governor F = qr
So P should be zero and q be + ve.

QUESTION: 13

A flywheel is fitted to the crankshaft of an engine having 'E' amount of indicated work per revolution and permissible limits of co-efficient of fluctuation of energy and speed as Ke and Ks respectively.

The kinetic energy of the flywheel is then given by

Solution:
QUESTION: 14

Assertion (A): The degree of hunting with an unstable governor will be less than with an isochronous governor.

Reason (R): With an unstable governor, once the sleeve has moved from one extreme position to the other, a finite change of speed is required to cause it to move back again.

Solution:
QUESTION: 15

If the rotating mass of a rim type fly wheel is distributed on another rim type flywheel whose mean radius is half mean radius of the former, then energy stored in the latter at the same speed will be

Solution:

Energy stored ∞ Iω2 , also I∞k2 (k = radius of gyration which is function of radius of wheel)
:. If radius is reduced to half, then energy stored will be reduced to one-fourth.

QUESTION: 16

Consider the following statements:

1. The condition of stability of a governor requires that the slope of the controlling force curve should be less than that of the line representing the centripetal force at the equilibrium speed under consideration.
2. For a centrifugal governor when the load on the prime mover drops suddenly, the sleeve should at once reach the lower-most position.

Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

Solution:
QUESTION: 17

For the same indicated work per cycle, mean speed and permissible fluctuation of speed, what is the size of flywheel required for a multi-cylinder engine in comparison to a single cylinder engine?

Solution:

Solution:
QUESTION: 19

The turning moment diagram for a single cylinder double acting steam engine consists of +ve and –ve loops above and bellow the average torque line. For the +ve loop, the ratio of the speeds of the flywheel at the beginning and the end is which one of the following?

Solution:

QUESTION: 20

Consider the following statements concerning centrifugal governors:

1. The slope of the controlling force curve should be less than that of the straight line representing the centripetal force at the speed considered for the stability of a centrifugal governor.
2. Isochronism for a centrifugal governor can be achieved only at the expense of stability.
3. When sleeve of a centrifugal governor reaches its topmost position, the engine should develop maximum power.

Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

Solution:
