Q.1 (A) Define: (i) Modulus of Elasticity ( ii) Lateral strain (iii) Poisson?s ratio 07
(B) Draw bending moment diagram and shear force diagram for a simply
supported beam of length ?L?, subjected to udl of ?w? kN/m throughout the
length and ?W? at the center of a beam.
07

Q.2 (A) (a) Define : Angle of Repose (b) State and explain the Laws of Static friction.
07
(B) In a machine it was found that an effort had to be moved through a distance
