Cariollis Component of Acceleration
This set up is designed to study coriollis component of Acceleration of a slider crank Mechanism.
The apparatus uses hydraulic analogy to represent the rotating slider.
It consists of a rotating block with two arms in opposite direction.
These tubes can be rotated at various speeds by using a swinging field motor, which also acts as a dynamometer to measure torque applied to rotating tubes.
Water is circulated by small monoblaock pump.
A Perspex window on top cover helps to visualize the process. Rotameter is used to measure water flow rate through tubes.
Main Tank with fiberglass lining.
Rotating Arms 9/6 mm dia, 300 mm long.
Motor Swinging field, D.C., 0.5 HP.
Control Panel comprising of:-
Speed Control Unit.
Rigid support frame.
Range of Experiment:-
Coriollis Component of Acceleration can be determined at various speeds of rotation and water flow rates.
A.C. Single Phase .230 V. stabilized supply.
Floor Space:-1.5 m X 1.5 m.
