# Machine Parts - Relating technical mechanics to the mechanics

In summary, the left drawing is an enlargement of just point B, where the weight is attached. The horizontal bar in the first drawing is a cylinder. The drawings match up exactly, suggesting they are different horizontal views of the same object.

## Homework Statement

Can anyone explain to me how is the left-sided drawing related to the right sided drawing? I asked the teacher but he confused me so I let it go.

The description is this:

This crane in the drawing is designed to lift load at max weight of 650kg through the described hook construct. The screw in the drawing is fastened by a force that prevents any relative sliding possibiltiy betwee the two surfaces.

The questions just want me to pick a right screw and right I profile for the beam, but I'm not trying to solve it. I'm trying to figure out how do the two drawings relate.

Hey Fp!

Seems to me the left drawing is an enlargement of just point B, where the weight is attached.

Hi ILS!
I like Serena said:

Oh, simpler than I thought! Thanks :)

OK but then there is this question. Is this also an enlargement of a point?

The structure in the drawing is made out of beams with a profile of 200x100x10, and connected to the wall at point A, C. At point B acts force F of 500 [kN]. Angle alpha is 30 degrees. The structure is welded to the wall at point A through 3 welded sutures, as described.

Yes, it appears to be an enlargement of point A.

But point A is not marked in the other drawings, how am I supposed to know where it is?

In your text it says "The structure is welded to the wall at point A through 3 welded sutures, as described."

That means that an enlargement of point A should show 3 sutures, which is what the left drawing shows.

As for scale, the distances in the drawing are up to 200.
I am assuming that is millimeters, so that is 20 cm.

The weight is 500 kN, which is equivalent to 50000 kg. Say a stack of 50 cars.
To be able to support such a weight, I'd expect that the point where it's welded would at least be 20 centimeters...

Finally got it :) How can I not? When ILS is in the hood!

And yes it does seem like an awful lot of weight... but this is what the question says!

Good! ;)

So are you designing equipment now that hauls weight like that?

Hehe, no, but I did design a lifting device; namely jackscrew, for this course (purely via solidworks) But it was just following up instructions, so wasn't an original design. If it was an original design I'd probably make a transformer to do the lifting! (muwahaha :) )

Hohoho, that's a design that I'd like to see!

They are exactly the same.
If you look at the first from the left, you'll see the second.

The horizontal bar in the first drawing is a cylinder.
It matches the hole in the second drawing where you are looking into the cylinder.

Funny how you were able to relate them, to me the left one looks like a bench (that you look at from behind...right?). And the the right one just looks like a bearing! But, if you say so, I'll go ahead and trust you! :)

I checked the measurements and saw they are the same scale.

Furthermore, the top and bottom of both drawings are aligned, suggesting they are different horizontal views of the same object.

When you lean back on your bench you'll have an uncomfortable cylinder in your back.

Hah, touche!

Well I'll be damned, I got to start using my head more... thanks!

## What are machine parts?

Machine parts are physical components that work together to form a functioning machine or mechanical system. They can be made of various materials such as metal, plastic, and rubber, and each part has a specific purpose and function within the machine.

## How do machine parts work?

Machine parts work by utilizing mechanical principles and forces to create motion and perform tasks. For example, gears work together to transfer rotational motion, while pistons use pressure from a fluid to create linear motion.

## What is the relationship between technical mechanics and machine parts?

Technical mechanics is the study of how forces and motion interact with physical objects, and machine parts are designed and engineered to utilize these principles. Machine parts are carefully designed and placed to maximize efficiency and functionality within a mechanical system.

## What are some common machine parts and their functions?

Some common machine parts include gears, pulleys, belts, bearings, and screws. Gears are used to transfer rotational motion, pulleys and belts are used to transfer motion between two distant points, bearings reduce friction and allow for smooth motion, and screws are used for fastening and creating linear motion.

## Why is it important to understand the mechanics of machine parts?

Understanding the mechanics of machine parts is crucial for designing and building efficient and reliable machines. It also allows for troubleshooting and maintenance of machines, ensuring they continue to function properly. Additionally, having a strong understanding of mechanics can lead to advancements and innovations in the field of engineering and technology.
