1. a) What is Axioms of mechanics ? Enumerate. [3M]

b) Reduce the force system in single force and determine its position w.r.t. point B as shown in fig. 1(b). [7M]


2. a) What are the characteristics of couple ? [3M]

b) ABCD are the points in space having the co-ordinates A(12, 0, 0), B(0, 4, -6), C(0, 0.7), D(0, -12, 0). The force
F = 5.6 kN acts from A to B Determine : Moment of a force F about the point C and moment about line CD. [7M]


3. a) Define free body diagram ? Explain with example. [3M]

b) Find the support reactions at A and B for the beam shown in fig. 3(b). [7M]


4. Determine the forces in all the members of the truss as shown in fig. 4 b. [10M]

5. a) Static and explain parallel axis theorem of moment of inertia. [3M]

b) Determine the moment of inertia about its centroidal orves of given fig. 5b. [7M]


6. a) State and explain principle of virtual work. [3M]

b) Determine the reaction at supports for the beam shown in fig. 6b by virtual work method. [7M]

7. a) Explain D’Alembert’s principle. [3M]

b) Two rough planes inclined 30° and 60° to horizontal are placed back to back as shown in figure. The blocks of weight 50 N and 100 N are placed on the faces and are connected by a string running parallel to planes and passing over a frictionless pulley, if the coefficient of friction between planes and blocks is 1/3, Find the resulting acceleration and tension in the string. [7M]


8. a) Explain the term Elastic Impact. [3M]

b) A 10N ball traverses a frictionless tube as shown in figure falling through a height of 2m. It then strikes a 20N ball hung from a rope 1.2 m long. Determine the height to which the hanging ball will rise if the collision is perfectly elastic. [7M]
