ME 338 – Fall 10 Problem Set #5 Due: Monday 11/01/10 (5pm) 1. Shown in the figure above (where T1=8T2) is a shaft that is supported by deep groove ball bearings at A and D. The speed of rotation is 300 rev/min and a design life of 3000 h is desired. Select appropriate 6300 series deep groove ball bearings for the application. Use the same size bearings at both locations. Can we replace the deep groove ball bearing with a self-aligning type? Also comment on the modifications that must be carried out to mount the bearings (deep groove as well as self-aligning).
