15. The acceleration of the particle moving with simple harmonic motion is inversely proportional to the displacement of the particle from the mean position.

A. Yes
B. No

Correct Answer: B. No

16. In the vibration isolation system, the transmissibility will be equal to unity, for all values of the damping factor, if ω/ωn is


Correct Answer: Option B

17. The two links OA and OB are connected by a pin joint at O. If the link OA turns with angular velocity ω1 rad/s in the clockwise direction and the link OB turns with angular velocity ω2 rad/s in the clockwise direction, then the rubbing velocity at the pin joint O is (where r = Radius of the pin at O)

A. ω12.r
B. ( ω1 – ω2)r
C. ( ω1 + ω2)r
D. ( ω1 – ω2)2r

Correct Answer: B. ( ω1 – ω2)r

18. If ω/ωn = √2, where co is the frequency of excitation and ωn is the natural frequency of vibrations, then the transmissibility of vibration will the

B. 1
C. 1.5
D. 2

Correct Answer: B. 1

19. A disturbing mass m1 attached to the rotating shaft may be balanced by a single mass m2 attached in the same plane of rotation as that of m1, such that (where r1 and r2 are the radii of rotation of m1
and m2 respectively)

A. m1r2 = m2r1
B. m1r1 = m2r2
C. m1m2 = r1r2
D. none of these

Correct Answer: B. m1r1 = m2r2
