# Unit I

Define mechanics 3

Unit II

## Discuss on different types of beam? 6

For the force system shown in figure determine the direction and magnitude of the resultant from O.

527. 12

## Define parallelogram law of forces. 2

Determine the support reaction at A and B for the simply supported beam.

Forces 32 kN, 24 kN, 24 kN and 120 kN are concurrent, non-coplanar acting at the origin and directed
through the points whose coordinates are A(2,1,6), B(4,-2,-5), C(-3,-2,1), D(5,1,-2) respectively.
Determine the resultant. 14

Unit III

## Define wedge and wedge friction. 3

An effort of 2200 n is required to move a certain body up a 20° incline plane. The force is acting parallel
to the plane. If the angle of inclination is changed from 20° to 25°, the effort required to move the body
increases to 2500 N. Find the weight of the body and the coefficient of friction. 14

## State laws of friction 6

A ladder of length 10m and weight 300 N is leaning against a vertical wall with an angle of 30° to the
vertical. A man of weight 500 N climbs the ladder. Find the position of the man at the instant the ladder
begins to slip. The coefficient of friction for all surfaces is 0.3. 12

Unit IV

## Define centroid of an area 3

Find the principal moment of inertia and its direction for the area shown in figure.247 12

## Explain about Pappus-Guldinus theorems. 6

Over a cylinder of height 15cm and radius of bas 5cm, a flat end of a hemisphere of radius 5 cm is
placed. Locate the centre of gravity of the compound set assuming that the density of both solids is
same. 10

Unit V

## What is meant by relative displacement and relative velocity? 4

A police officer observes a motorist who is approaching at a uniform speed of 80 km/h. He, in his patrol
car, starts chasing it as it just crosses him. After accelerating for 8 sec at a constant rate, he attains his
top speed of 120 km/h. how long does it take to overtake the motorist and at what distance. 10

Two stones A and B are projected from the same point at 45° and 30° respectively, inclined to the
horizontal. Find the ratio of the velocities of projection of A and B if the maximum height reached by
both is the same. 10
A stone is thrown vertically upwards at the bank of a watertank, which is located 50m above the water
level. If it strikes the water after 5 sec, determine i) the speed at which the stone was thrown up and ii)
the speed at which the stone strikes the water. 10
