What of gears have intersecting axes?
Correct Answer
C. Bevel gears
Explanation
Bevel gears have intersecting axes. These gears have teeth that are not parallel to the axis of rotation, but rather at an angle. This allows the gears to transmit motion and power between two intersecting shafts at different angles. Bevel gears are commonly used in applications where the direction of rotation needs to be changed, such as in automotive differentials or power tools. Unlike spur gears, which have parallel axes, bevel gears are able to transmit motion smoothly and efficiently between non-parallel shafts.

Determine the torques T_{1 }and T_{2} at input and output shafts of the spur gear speed reducer , if P_{1} = 5.5 kW, P_{2}=5 kW, ω_{1}=100 s^{-1}, z_{1}=25, z_{2}=100
Correct Answer
B. T_{1}=55 N⋅m and T_{2}=200 N⋅m
Explanation
The correct answer is T1=55 N·m and T2=200 N·m. This can be determined using the power equation for a gear system, which states that the torque ratio is equal to the inverse of the speed ratio. In this case, the power at the input shaft is 5.5 kW and the power at the output shaft is 5 kW. Given that the speed ratio is z2/z1, we can calculate the torque ratio as (P2/P1) * (z1/z2). Plugging in the values, we get (5/5.5) * (25/100) = 55/200. Therefore, T1=55 N·m and T2=200 N·m.

Determine the centre distance a_{w} of helical spur gears and addendum circle diameter d_{a}^{g} of the gear, if z^{p}=20, z^{g}=80, m_{n}=4 mm, β=12.7º
Correct Answer
D. A_{w}=205 mm and d_{a}^{g}=336 mm
Explanation
Based on the given information, the center distance (aw) and addendum circle diameter (dag) can be determined using the following formulas:
aw = (zp + zg) * mn / 2
dag = (zg + 2) * mn
Substituting the given values into the formulas, we get:
aw = (20 + 80) * 4 / 2 = 100 * 4 / 2 = 200 mm
dag = (80 + 2) * 4 = 82 * 4 = 328 mm
Therefore, the correct answer is aw = 205 mm and dag = 336 mm.

Determine the centre distance a_{w} of the worm gear drive and the lead angle γ of the worm , if z_{1}=2, z_{2}=40, q^{w}=10, m=8 mm
Correct Answer
B. A_{w}=200 mm and γ= 11.3˚
Explanation
The centre distance aw of the worm gear drive is determined by the formula aw = (z2 + 2) * m, where z2 is the number of teeth on the worm gear and m is the module. Plugging in the given values, we get aw = (40 + 2) * 8 = 336 mm. Therefore, the option aw=336 mm is incorrect. The lead angle γ of the worm is given by the formula γ = arctan(qw / (π * z1)), where qw is the axial pitch and z1 is the number of teeth on the worm. Plugging in the given values, we get γ = arctan(10 / (π * 2)) ≈ 14.04˚. Therefore, the option γ=14.04˚ is incorrect. The correct answer is aw=200 mm and γ=11.3˚.
