direction is equal to the resolved part of their resultant in the same direction. (6M)
b) Determine the resultant of the force
system shown in the figure. Assume
that the coordinates of different points
are in meters.

4. a) Determine the volume generated by rotating a semi-circular area of radius `r`
about a non-intersecting axis using Pappus theorem. (6M)
b) Find the centre of gravity of the L-
section shown in figure.
(8M)
5. a) An isosceles triangle section ABC has a base of 100mm and 60mm height.
Determine the moment of inertia of triangle about the centroid and about base. (6M)
b) Determine moment of inertia of a cylinder shaft of 120mm diameter and 1.75m
height about the centre of gravity XX, YY, ZZ axes. (density, ?= 8000kg/m
3
). (8M)
6. a) A vehicle running at 36km/h on a straight road accelerates uniformly to 72km/h
over a distance of 200m. Determine the acceleration and time taken. How much
distance will be covered by the vehicle in the 5
th
second? (6M)
b) A solid cylinder weighing 1300N is
acted upon by a force `P` horizontally
as shown in figure. Determine the
maximum value of `P` for which there
will be rolling without slipping. (coefficient of friction, ?=0.2).
(8M)
7. A bullet of 25 g mass is fired with a speed of 400 m/s. What is its kinetic energy?
If the bullet can penetrate 20 cm in a block of wood, what is the average resistance
of the wood? If the bullet were fired into a similar block of 10 cm thick wood,
what would be the exit speed? (14M)
