    DEGREES OF FREEDOM -3

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM – 3 KINEMATIC CONSTRAINTS The motion of the independent rigid bodies can be controlled with kinematic constraints.A Kinematic constraint  between two or more rigid bodies decreases the degrees of freedom for the connected rigid bodies.Main classification of kinematic pairs falls in three categories. However these three categories are further sub divided as described […]


  • DEGREES OF FREEDOM-2

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM-2

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM-2 One particle in space has Degrees of freedom = 3 A body has Degrees of freedom in space =6 Thus analysis of a particle and rigid body is entirely different. Single plane degrees of freedom Rigid body in one plane has three degrees of freedom=One rotational + two transnational Single rigid body in […]

It supplies back this energy to the machine in the remaining strokes of the cycle and maintains a constant speed of the machine. Four stroke internal combustion engines develop power only during […]

    Mcq: levers

    Mcq: levers Mcq help in understanding the levers in full depth. Levers give us a mechanical advantage. Thus, levers can lift heavy jobs with less effort. Class 1 levers have Effort between the load and the fulcrum Fulcrum placed between the effort and load Load in-between the effort and the fulcrum None Ans: (ii) Levers […]

    INTERVIEW SHORT QUESTION ANSWERS- COUPLINGS

    INTERVIEW SHORT QUESTION ANSWERS-couplings Q. What is a flexible coupling, give examples and their practical applications? A. A coupling is used to connect two power transmitting shafts having same RPM. It also accommodates misalignment and axial end movement of the shaft. Hence these are also called flexible couplings or compensating couplings. Small misalignment may be linear, […]
