3. Discuss bearing characteristic number and bearing modulus as applied to journal bearing?
4. Explain the importance of ray-diagram in gear box design?
5. What are the factors affecting the stiffness of machine tool structures?

Part B : (20×4=80Marks)
Module – I :
6. Design a journal bearing for a centrifugal pump for the following conditions Journal diameter = 75mm
Speed of the journal = 1140 rpm
Load on the journal = 11500N

7. Select a single row deep groove ball bearing for a radial load of 4000N and an axial load of 5000N,operating at a speed of 1600 rpm for an average life of 5 years at 10 hrs. per day. Assume uniform and steady load?

Module – II :
8. A pair of helical gears 23º helix angle is used to transmit 25 KW at 3000 rpm from the pinion shaft with a velocity ratio of 3:1.The static strength of the gear material can be taken as 75N/mm2. Number of teeth on the pinion is 24.Find the module pitch,face width and axial thrust developed on the shaft for 20º full depth involute teeth and check the design against static strength considerations?
