Q31. The effort of a Porter governor (when the arms of the governor are equal and have equal inclination with the axis of the governor spindle) is equal to

\[\text { (a) } C(w+W) \]


\[\text { (b) } \frac{(w+W)}{C} \]


\[ \text { (c) } \frac{(w+W \times C)}{C}\]


\[\text { (d) } \frac{(C \times w+W)}{C} \text { . } \]


where w = Weight of ball of governor, W = Weight on sleeve, and C = Percentage increase in speed.

Ans: \[\text { (a) } C(w+W) \]


Q32. The effort of a Hartnell governor (where the moments due to weight of the arms and ball are neglected) is equal to

\[\text { (b) CS } \]


\[\text { (c) } \frac{1}{C S} \]


\[\text { (d) } \frac{S}{C} \text { . } \]


where C = Percentage increase in speed, and S = Spring force exerted on the sleeve.

Ans: \[\text { (b) CS } \]
