erasures allowed.

1. Select a deep-groove ball bearing to carry a radial load Fx = 800 lb and a thrust load Fz = 700 lb at 1800 rpm. The service is 8 hr/day, but it is not
continuous; design for 18 250 hr. The operation is smooth with little vibration; the outer ring rotates. Determine the design life in million revolution (mr)
with no more than 10 % failure.

3. Find the pressure required to punch a 1-inch square hole in ¼ -inch thick steel.
a) 20.67 tons b) 26.76 tons c) 26.67 tons d) 26.67 tons
⎛ 4⎞⎛ 1 ⎞

⎝ 3⎠⎝ 4⎠
π D ss t
o Pressure Required for Punching.—The formula for the force in tons required to punch a circular hole in sheet steel is, F = , where ss =
2 000
the shearing strength of the material in psi; t = thickness of the steel in inches, and 2000 is the number of lb in 1 ton. An approximate formula is,
F = D t (80) , where D and T are the diameter of the hole and the thickness of the steel, respectively, both in inches, and 80 is a factor for steel.
The result is the force in tons.
o If the hole is not circular, replace the hole diameter with the value of one-third of the perimeter of the hole to be punched.
o The corresponding factor for punching holes in brass is 65 instead of 80.

5. Determine the permissible working stress of a UNC bolt that has a stress area of 0.606 in if the material used is carbon steel.
a) 4055.49 psi b) 4505.49 psi c) 4550.49 psi d) 4455.09 psi

Solution: s w = C (A r )0.418 = (5000 )(0.606)0.418 = 4055.49 psi

Note: From Vallance, p138. Bolt permissible stress, s w = C (A r )0.418 Applied load, Fa = s w A r = C (A r )1.418

Where, C = 5000 for carbon steel bolt C = 15 000 for alloy-steel bolts C = 1 000 for bronze bolts
6. Compute the working strength of 1.5 inches bolt which is screwed up tightly in packed joint when the allowable working stress is 13000 psi.
a) 11 212.5 lb b) 10 212.5 lb c) 12 212.5 lb d) 13 212.5 lb

Solution: From Machinery’s Handbook, ( ) [ ]

W = s t 0.55 d 2 − 0.25 d = (13 000) 0.55(1.5)2 − 0.25(1.5) = 11 212.5 lb

Where, W = working strength, lb st = allowable working stress, psi d = nominal diameter, inch

Second Critical Speed, N 2 = 4 (1054.32 ) = 4217.28 rpm

Note: The next critical speeds from the lowest critical speed can be found by multiplying by 4, 9, 16, 25, and so on.

8. In 1-inch-diameter shaft has a single disc weighing 75 lb mounted midway between two bearings 20 inches apart. Find the lowest critical speed in rpm.
Neglect the weight of the shaft.. Assume that the modulus of elasticity is 30 000 000 psi.

Solution: For the disc mounted midway between bearings (neglecting shaft weight),
