Question 1 Explanation:

\begin{aligned} I_G&=2 \times (M \times r^2) \\&=2 \times 1 \times 0.4^2=0.32\; kg/m^2 \\ \Sigma F&=m\cdot a\\ &\Rightarrow 10-f=3.5 \times a\;...(i)\\ \Sigma T&=I\cdot \alpha \\ &\Rightarrow 10 \times 0.1 -f\times 0.4=0.32 \times \frac{a}{0.4} \;...(ii)\\ \end{aligned}

[As there is no slip \therefore \;\;a=r\alpha ]

Solving (i) and (ii),

\therefore \;\;a=5\; m/s^2

Energy conservation

\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{2} m V_{1}^{2} &=\frac{1}{2} m V_{0}^{2}+\frac{1}{2} k x^{2} \\ \Rightarrow \quad 2 \times 1.5^{2} &=2 \times V_{0}^{2}+5 \times 0.4^{2} \\ V_{0} &=1.360 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s} \end{aligned}

\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{2} m V_{1}^{2} &=\frac{1}{2} m V_{0}^{2}+\frac{1}{2} k x^{2} \\ \Rightarrow \quad 2 \times 1.5^{2} &=2 \times V_{0}^{2}+5 \times 0.4^{2} \\ V_{0} &=1.360 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s} \end{aligned}

Question 5 Explanation:

For Crank-Rocker mechanism, shortest link must be crank and adjacent to fixed as well as Grashoff's law must be satisfied.

If l = 80 mm then shortest will be = 80 mm

as well as (80 + 600) \lt(400 + 300)

680 \lt 700

Therefore law is satisfied.

\Rightarrow l = 80 mm

Question 7 Explanation:

Circumferential stress, \sigma_{n}=\frac{P R}{t}

\text { Axial stress, } \sigma_{L}=\frac{P R}{2 t}+50 \mathrm{MPa}

\begin{aligned} {Now,}\quad \sigma_{n} &=\sigma_{L} \\ \frac{P R}{t} &=\frac{P R}{2 t}+50 \mathrm{MPa} \\ \therefore\quad \frac{P R}{2 t} &=50 \mathrm{MPa}\\ P&=\frac{50 \times 2 \times 5}{100}=5 \mathrm{MPa} \end{aligned}

\text { Axial stress, } \sigma_{L}=\frac{P R}{2 t}+50 \mathrm{MPa}

\begin{aligned} {Now,}\quad \sigma_{n} &=\sigma_{L} \\ \frac{P R}{t} &=\frac{P R}{2 t}+50 \mathrm{MPa} \\ \therefore\quad \frac{P R}{2 t} &=50 \mathrm{MPa}\\ P&=\frac{50 \times 2 \times 5}{100}=5 \mathrm{MPa} \end{aligned}
