11. a).In the toggle mechanism shown in fig., the slider D is constrained to move on a
horizontal path. The crank OA is rotating in the counter clockwise direction at a speed of 180
r.p.m increasing at the rate of 50 rad/s2.The dimensions of the various links are as follows.
OA=180 mm; CB=240mm; AB=360mm; and BD=540mm.

velocity and angular acceleration of the links AB,BC and BD; and (iii) the linear acceleration
of the slider D.

CD;and (2) angular acceleration of BC and CD.

12. a).From the following data draw the profile of a cam in which the follower moves with
SHM during ascent while it moves with uniformly accelerated and decelerated motion during
descent. Least radius of the cam = 50 mm; Angle of ascent = 48; Angle of dwell= 42; Angle
of descent= 60; Lift of the follower= 40 mm; Diameter of the roller= 30 mm.

(Or)
12. b).A cam, with a minimum radius of 50 mm, rotating clockwise at a uniform speed, is
required to given a knife-edged follower the motion as described below: (a) To move
outwards through 40 mm during 100 rotation of the cam; (b) to dwell for next 80 (c) To
return to its starting position during next 90 and (d) To dwell for the rest period of
revolution. Draw the profile of the cam (i) When the line of stroke of the follower passes
through the centre of the cam shaft and (ii) When the line of stroke of the follower is to take
place with Uniform acceleration and uniform retardation.

13. a).It is required to set out the profile of a cam to give the following motion to the
reciprocating follower with a flat contact surface: (i) Follower to have a stroke of 20 mm
during 120 of cam rotation, (ii) Follower to dwell for 30 of cam rotation, (iii) Follower to
return to its initial position during 120 of cam rotation, (iv) Follower to dwell for remaining
90 of cam rotation. The minimum radius of the cam is 25 mm. The out stroke of the
follower is performed with SHM and return stroke with equal uniform acceleration and
retardation.
(Or)
13. b).Draw the profile of a cam operating a roller reciprocating follower and with the
following data: Minimum radius of cam =25 mm; lift=30mm; Roller diameter= 15mm. The
cam lifts the follower for 120 with SHM, followed by a dwell period of 30. Then the
follower lowers down during 150 of cam rotation with uniform acceleration and
retardation followed by a dwell period.
