1. A connecting rod weighing 19.6N oscillates 45 times in 1 min when suspended as shown in fig. 1.
Determine its moment of inertia about its centre of gravity, which is located 0.25m from the point
of support.

2. A mass m1 hangs from a spring k N/m and is in static equilibrium. A second mass m 2 drops
through a height h and sticks to m 1 without rebound as shown in fig. 2. Determine the subsequent

3. The oscillatory characteristics of ships in rolling motion depend on the position of the Meta
center M with respect to the centre of gravity G. The meta center M represents the point of
intersection of the line of action of the buoyant force and the center line of the ship, and its
distance measured from G is the meta centric height as shown in fig. 3. The position of M
depends on the shape of the hull and is independent of the angular inclination q of the ship for
small values of q . Show that the period of rolling motion is given by
t = 2p
Where J is the mass moment of inertia of the ship about its roll axis and W is the weight of the
ship. In general, the position of the roll axis is unknown and J is obtained from the period of
oscillation determined from a model test.

a viscous fluid as shown in fig. 6. If t 1 is the natural period of undamped oscillation(i.e with the

moving along a sinusoidal road having the prole y ( x ) = A sin L x , where A is the

amplitude, L is the wavelength and x is the vehicle traverse along the road. The damping
coecient of the suspension is 100Ns/m. If A = 5mm and L = 10m, what should be the
stiness k of the suspension so that the amplitude of vibration of the sprung mass m is less
than 2mm when the vehicle is traveling at a constant velocity of v = 50km/hr. For this value
of stiness what will be the amplitude and phase of vibration of the mass when the vehicle
speed increases to 60km/hr.

bending stiffness of the shaft is EI=1600Nm 2. Determine the amplitude of vibration if the
turbine rotor rotates with an angular velocity of 6000rpm. Assume that the shaft bearings are
