2.5kW of power is transmitted by an open belt drive. The linear velocity of the belt is 2.5 m/s. The angle of lap on the smaller pulley is 165°. The coefficient of friction is 0.3. Determine the effect on power transmission in the following cases:

i) initial tension in the belt is increased by 8%

ii) angle of lap is increased by 8% by the use of an idler pulley, for the same speed and the tension on the tight side.

A cam rotating clockwise at a uniform speed of 100 rpm is required to give motion to knife edge follower as below:

i) Follower to move outwards through 25 mm during 120° of cam rotation.

ii) Follower to dwell for the next 60° of cam rotation.

iii) Follower to return to its starting position during next 90° of cam rotation

iv) Follower to dwell for the rest of the cam rotation. The minimum radius of the cam is 50 mm and the line of stroke of th e follower passes through the axis of the cam shaft. If the displacement of the follower take place with uniform acceleration and retardation on both the outward and return strokes, find and draw the maximum velocity and acceleration during outward and return stoke.
