So we cannot indicate the direction of its motion specifically, i.e. either clockwise or anticlockwise. 460 l Theory of Machines Since the speed of the arm is 100 r.p.m. anticlockwise, therefore from the fourth row of the table, y = + 100 Also, the speed of the driving shaft X or gear A is 100 r.p.m. clockwise. ∴ x + y = – 100 or x = – y – 100 = – 100 – 100 = – 200 ∴ Speed of the driven shaft i.e. shaft Y , N Y = Speed of gear B = y – x × 40 TA = 100 – – 200 × 30 TB = + 366.7 r.p.m. = 366.7 r.p.m. (anticlockwise) Ans. Example 13.17. In a gear train, as shown in Fig. 13.23, gear B is connected to the input shaft and gear F is connected to the output shaft. The arm A carrying the compound wheels D and E, turns freely on the output shaft. If the input speed is 1000 r.p.m. counter- clockwise when seen from the right, determine the speed of the output shaft under the following conditions : 1. When gear C is fixed, and 2. when gear C is rotated at 10 r.p.m . counter clockwise. Solution. Given : T B = 20 ; T C = 80 ; T D = 60 ; T E = 30 ; T F = 32 ; N B = 1000 r.p.m. (counter-clockwise) Fig. 13.23 The table of motions is given below : Table 13.19. Table of motions.
