a) above
b) below
c) on
d) none of the mentioned

Explanation: Face of tooth is the surface of the gear tooth above the pitch surface.
Flank of tooth is the surface of the gear tooth below the pitch surface.

3 - Question

a) circular pitch
b) diametral pitch
c) module
d) none of the mentioned

Explanation: Diametral pitch is the ratio of number of teeth to the pitch circle diameter in millimetres.
Circular pitch is the distance measured on the circumference of the pitch circle from a point of one tooth to the corresponding point on the next tooth.

4 - Question

a) True
b) False

Explanation: Diametral pitch is the ratio of number of teeth to the pitch circle diameter in millimetres.
Circular pitch is the distance measured on the circumference of the pitch circle from a point of one tooth to the corresponding point on the next tooth.

5 - Question

Explanation: None.

7 - Question

The module is the reciprocal of diametral pitch.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: Diametral pitch is the ratio of number of teeth to the pitch circle diameter in millimetres.

8 - Question

The dedendum circle diameter is equal to
a) pitch circle dia. x cosɸ
b) addendum circle dia. x cosɸ
c) clearance circle dia. x cosɸ
d) pitch circle dia. x sinɸ

Explanation: It is the circle drawn through the bottom of the teeth. It is also called root circle.
Root circle diameter = Pitch circle diameter × cos φ, where φ is the pressure angle.
