    1. When the connection between the two elements is such that only required kind of relative motion occurs, it is known as self-closed pair.
    Right
    Wrong

    2. When the axes of the shafts, over which the gears are mounted, move relative to a fixed axis, then the train is known as reverted gear train.
    Right
    Wrong

    3. A pair of friction discs is an example of rolling pair.
    True
    False

    4. When a particle moves round the circumference of a circle of radius 'r' with ω rad/s, then its maximum acceleration is ω²r.
    Right
    Wrong

    5. For static balancing of a shaft, the net dynamic force acting on the shaft is equal to zero.
    Agree
    Disagree

    6. A spring controlled governor is said to be unstable, if the relation between the controlling force (Fc) and radius of rotation (r) is Fc = ar.
    Agree
    Disagree

    7. When the nature of contact between the elements of a pair is such that it can turn or revolve about a fixed axis, the pair is known as a rolling pair.
    Correct
    Incorrect

    8. The natural frequency of free transverse vibrations of a shaft fixed at both ends and carrying a uniformly distributed load is 0.571/δS  , where δS is the static deflection of a shaft fixed at both ends and carrying a uniformly distributed load.
    True
    False

    9. The controlling force diagram for a spring controlled governor is a curve passing through the origin.
    Yes
    No

    10. The engine of an aeroplane rotates in clockwise direction when seen from the tail end and the aeroplane takes a turn to the right. The effect of gyroscopic couple on the aeroplane will be to dip the nose and raise the tail.
    Correct
    Incorrect

    11. In a multiple V-belt drive, all the belts should stretch at the same rate.
    Agree
    Disagree

    12. The effect of swaying couple in a locomotive is resisted by the side pressure between the flanges of the tyres of the wheel and the inside of the rails.
    Agree
    Disagree

    13. The maximum gyroscopic couple acting on the ship tends to shear the holding down bolts.
    Correct
    Incorrect

    14. In a steam engine, the distance by which the inner edge of the D-slide valve overlaps the steam port is called lead.
    Agree
    Disagree

    15. The inertia force is equal to the accelerating force in magnitude, but opposite in direction.
    Right
    Wrong

    16. A slider moving on a fixed link having constant radius of curvature will have its instantaneous centre at the centre of the circle.
    Agree
    Disagree

    17. The ball and socket joint is an example of screw pair.
    Agree
    Disagree

    18. The interference may only be avoided if the addendum circles of the two mating gears cut the common tangent to the base circles between the points of tangency.
    True
    False

    19. The equation of motion for a vibrating system with viscous damping is (d²x/dt²) + (c/m)(dx/dt) + (s/m).x = 0, if the roots of the equation are complex conjugate, then the system will be critically damped.
    Yes
    No

    20. An over-damped system, when disturbed from the equilibrium position, will not cross the equilibrium position.
    Right
    Wrong
