Solve any one question from Q2(b) & Q2(c)

2 (b)
Four masses 150 kg, 200 kg, 100 kg and 250 kg are attached to a shaft
revolving at radii 150mm, 200 mm, 100 mm and 250 mm; in planes A,
B, C and D respectively. The planes B, C and D are at distances 350 mm,
500 mm and 800 mm from plane A. The masses in planes B, C and D are
at an angle 105°, 200° and 300° measured anticlockwise from mass in
plane A. It is required to balance the system by placing the balancing
masses in the planes P and Q which are midway between the planes A
and B, and between C and D respectively. If the balancing masses
revolve at radius 180 mm, find the magnitude and angular positions of the
balance masses.
