Ans: B

98: Orthogonal cutting of mild steel has the given data: cutting speed = 35m/min, depth of cut = 0.25mm, tool rake angle = 10°, chip

thickness = 0.8mm, cutting force = 925N, thrust force = 475 N. Using Merchant analysis, find the friction angle(approximately).

A 10°

B 27°

C 37°

D 48°

Ans: C

99: A batch of 10 cutting tools could produce 500 components while working at 50 rpm with a tool feed of 0.25 mm/rev. and depth

of cut =1mm. A similar batch of 10 tools of the same specifications could produce 122 components while working at 80 rpm with

a feed of 0.25 mm/rev and 1mm depth of cut. How many components can be produced with one cutting tool at 60 rpm? (consider

closest option).

A 29

B 31

C 37

D 42

Ans: A

100: Internal gear cutting operation can be performed by

A Milling

B Shaping with rack cutter

C Shaping with pinion cutter
