4(b) A horizontal double acting steam engine has cylinder diameter 220mm,length of stroke 360mm and runs at 240r.p.m. The length of connecting rod is 720mm.The mass of the reciprocating part is 100kg.steam is admitted at a pressure of 6 bar gauge and cut off takes place at \[\dfrac{1}{4}\\]th of the stroke.After this expansion takes place according to the law pV=constant.The exhaust iis at pressure of -0.80bar gauge. Determine the torque exerted on the shaft when crank has turned through 75° from inner dead centre,Neglect the effect of clearance and assume atmospheric pressure as 1bar.
