Q. |
## is a curve generated by a point on the circumference of a circle which rolls without slipping on a straight line. |

A. | trochoid |

B. | epicycloid |

C. | cycloid |

D. | evolute |

Answer» C. cycloid | |

Explanation: trochoid is curve generated by a point fixed to a circle, within or outside its circumference, as the circle rolls along a straight line. cycloid is a curve generated by a point on the circumference of a circle which rolls along a straight line. ‘epi’ represents the directing path is a circle. |

- is a curve generated by a point on the circumference of a circle, which rolls without slipping along another circle outside it.
- is a curve generated by a point fixed to a circle, within or outside its circumference, as the circle rolls along a straight line.
- When the circle rolls along another circle inside it, the curve is called a
- Straight lines drawn from the apex to the circumference of the base-circle are all equal and are called
- The locus of point moving in a plane such that the distance between a fixed point and a fixed straight line is constant is called as
- A point is in 2nd quadrant 20 units away from the horizontal plane and 10 units away from the vertical plane. Orthographic projection is drawn. What is the distance from point of front view to reference line, top view point to reference line?
- A point is in 2nd quadrant 15 units away from the vertical plane and 10 units away from the horizontal plane. Orthographic projection is drawn. What is the distance from point of front view to reference line, top view point to reference line?
- A point is in 4th quadrant 10 units away from the horizontal plane and 20 units away from the vertical plane. Orthographic projection is drawn. What is the distance from point of front view to reference line, top view point to reference line?
- A line is perpendicular to horizontal plane, the perpendicular distance from the line to vertical plane is 8 inches and perpendicular distance from the line to profile plane is 5 inches. What is the distance from the line to vertical reference line if it is viewed from front view?
- A line is perpendicular to profile plane, the perpendicular distance from the line to vertical plane is 10 cm and perpendicular distance from the line to horizontal plane is 5 cm. What is the distance from the line to vertical reference line if it is viewed from a side view?
