: Oh my God! I got that question on a Canadian (BC) 2nd Class exam in 1986. I couldn't believe they would ask a question like that...it's a lot to ask just for a measly 20 marks!

: I believe it's a composite, made up of a number of questions in Reed's, mixed thoroughly and baked at 350 degrees for an hour ;-)

: Unlike the other guys I did not pass that paper, but I have since gone on to finish my 1st Class a couple of years ago.

: That really brought back a painful memory!

: : I was hoping somebody could come up with some answers and written out solutions for me for a couple questions I got on a recent exam i wrote.

: : 1) A bevel gear drive is used to lift a sluice gat which has a mass of 3.055 tonnes. It is subject to a pressure of 276 kPa over its 2.4 metre diameter. The vertical screw spindel has a square thread of mean diameter of 75mm and a 25 mm pitch and passes through a bush fixed to a spindel. The coefficient of friction between the sluice and verticle guide on which it presses and between the screw and bush is equal to 0.1
: : The bevel wheen keyed to a spindle has 40 teeth and drive pinion on motor shaft has 10 teeth. Determine the Torque on motor shaft required to raise the gat neglecting losses, other than friction at the thread and sluice gate.

: : 2)A mass of 336 kilograms falls through a distance of 17.5 mm on to the stop at the lower end of a vertical steel bar which is 5.2 metres long and 735 square mm in cross section area. If modulus of elasticity is equal to 210 GPascals for the bar.

: : Find: a)instantaneous elongation
: : b)The Stress in the bar.

I may have seen that question before, can you remember what series it was? I am writing my 2nd's exams, if you want to exchange study material, e-mail me
