(1) Assume appropriate data and state your reasons
(2) Marks are given to the right of every question
(3) Draw neat diagrams wherever necessary

1 (a) Define metrology. what are the objectives of metrology.
5 M
1 (b) Explain "Imperial standard yard" and "International prototype meter", with neat sketches.
10 M
1 (c) A calibrated meter end bar has an actual length of 1000.0002 mm. It is used in calibration of two bars A and B, each having a basic length of 500 mm. When compared with the meterbar La t Le was found to be shorter by 0.0003 mm. In comparing A and B, it was found that A was 0.0004 mm longer than B. Find the actual length of A and B.
5 M

2 (a) Differentiate : i) unilateral and bilateral tolerances ii) clearance fit and interference fit.
6 M
2 (b) Determine the dimensions of shaft and hole for a fit 30 H?7f ? 8. The given data are: $i=0.45 \sqrt{D}+0.001D$ microns. Fundamental deviation for f shaft is -5.5D ? 0.41 ar microns, 30 mm falls in the diameter step of 18 and 30. Tolerance grade for IT? 7 and IT?8 are 16i and 25i respectively. Also design plug gauge to check the above hole. Take wear allowance as 10% of the gauge tolerance.
