Q:

From the following data:
Teeth on pinion: 30
Teeth on gear: 80
Pressure angle: 20°
Module: 12mm
Addendum: 10mm
Find the contact ratio.

A) 1.5 B) 1.75
C) 2 D) 1,33
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1.75

Explanation: R = mT/2 = 480mm
r = mt/2 = 180mm
Addendum radius of pinion = 190mm
Addendum radius of gear = 490mm
Using the relation for length of path of approach
We get path of approach = 27.3mm
Path of recess = 25mm
adding both we get total length of path of contact
= 52.3mm
Length of arc of contact = length of path of contact / cosΦ
Contact ratio = Length of arc of contact/Pc
=1.75.

Q:

Maximum sliding velocity is the sum of angular velocities and its product with the length of path of contact.

A) True B) False
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) False

Explanation: Maximum sliding velocity is the sum of angular velocities and its product with the length of path of appraoch.
Vs = (ω₂ + ω₁)x(length of path of approach).

Q:

From the following data:
Teeth on pinion: 30
Teeth on gear: 80
Pressure angle: 20°
Module: 12mm
Addendum: 10mm
Find the length of arc of contact in mm.

A) 52.333 B) 55.66
C) 53.22 D) 54.55
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 55.66

Explanation: R = mT/2 = 480mm
r = mt/2 = 180mm
Addendum radius of pinion = 190mm
Addendum radius of gear = 490mm
Using the relation for length of path of approach
We get path of approach = 27.3mm
Path of recess = 25mm
adding both we get total length of path of contact
= 52.3mm
Length of arc of contact = length of path of contact / cosΦ
= 55.66mm.

Q:

From the following data, find the addendum in mm:
Teeth on each wheel: 40
Pressure angle: 20°
Module: 6mm
Arc of contact/ pitch: 1.75

A) 6.12 B) 6.51
C) 6.61 D) 6.81
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 6.12

Explanation: Pc = πm = 18.85mm
Arc of contact = 1.75xp = 33mm
Length of path of contact = cosΦx Arc of contact
From another relation of length of path of contact we get
Ra = 126.12 mm
R = 120mm
Therefore addendum = 6.12mm.

Q:

Which of the following is true for Length of path of contact?

A) Sum of path of recess and path of approach B) Difference of path of approach and path of recess
C) Twice the arc of approach D) Twice the path of recess
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Sum of path of recess and path of approach

Explanation: The path of contact is given by the sum of Length of path of approach and length of path of recess. Numerically it is dependent on pitch radius, addendum radius and the sine of pressure angle.

Q:

Which of the following is true for Length of arc of contact?

A) Sum of Arc of recess and Arc of approach B) Difference of arc of approach and arc of recess
C) Twice the arc of approach D) Twice the arc of recess
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Sum of Arc of recess and Arc of approach

Explanation: The arc of contact is given by the sum of Length of arc of approach and length of arc of recess. Numerically it is the ratio of length of path of contact and the cosine of the pressure angle.
