PROJECTION OF LINES:

1. The HT and the VT of a straight line AB is below and above XY respectively. The distance between the HT and the VT as measured parallel to XY is 200 mm. The end B of the line is nearer to the VP than the end A. The view from above of the line makes 30° to XY. The end B is 10 mm from the VP and 20 mm from the HP. The distance between the end projectors of the line measures 50 mm parallel to XY. Draw the projections of the line. (R09mech june2010set2)

2. The HT and the VT of a straight line coincides with each other and 20 mm away from one of the ends as measured parallel to XY. The distance between the end projectors of the line measured parallel to XY is 50 mm. Draw the projections. Find the TL and the true inclinations of the line. The end nearer to the HT and the VT is 15 mm from the VP and 25 mm from the HP. (R09mech june2010set1)

3. A room has the dimensions 6m ×4m ×3m. Two nails are driven on two adjacent walls at heights of 2.5m and 1.5m from the ground respectively. One nail is 3m away and another is 2m away from the common edge of the walls. Find graphically the minimum length of the thread required to connect the nails. What is the inclination of the thread to the ground and to the wall? (R09mech june2010set3)

4. The seat of a stool is a square 450 mm by 450 mm. Four legs from the corners of the stool spread out and form the corners of a square 600 mm by 600 mm on the flat ground. The height of the stool from the ground is 500 mm. Find the TL and inclination of any one of the legs w.r.t the ground.

5. Three pegs are arranged on a flat ground on the circumference of a circle of diameter 3000 mm. The pegs when joined by straight lines form an equilateral triangle. A post 6000 mm high is fixed vertically on the ground at the centre of the circle. The pegs are connected to the top of the post by tight ropes.
