### Mechanical Questions

#### 1.Q. Discuss the various types of Cam and Follower?

2.Q. Explain the term PISTON EFFORT, CRANK EFFORT, and CRANK PIN EFFORT?

3.Q. Draw the cam profile for a knife-edge follower with the following data
(i)Cam lift 40 mm during 90° of cam rotation with SHM
(ii)Dwell for next 30°
(iii)During the next 60° of cam rotates the follower returns to its original position with SHM
(iv) Dwell during the remaining 180°
The radius of the base circle of the cam is 40mm, Determine the maximum velocity of the follower during its ascent and descent, if cam rotates at 240rpm.
