 ## What are the different types of loads that can act on machine components?

The five types of loads that can act on a structure are tension, compression, shear, bending and torsion..

## Which is load and supply?

A Switch is usually placed between a Source of Power and a Device or Circuit which uses the Power. The Power Source is considered the Supply; and, the Circuit or Device is considered the Load. … One terminal gets connected to the power source (supply) and the other to the device to be powered (load).

## What is load current formula?

Full Load current calculation Single-phase Motor: Single-phase motor full load current I is equal to power P divided by the power factor times of line to neutral voltage. P = V * I * Cos pi. Full load current I = P / (V x Cos pi) Amps. V= Voltage +/- 10 % in Volts. I= Full load current in Amps.

## What is a load in physics?

Load is a term frequently used in engineering to mean the force exerted on a surface or body.

## What is the mechanical advantage of a lifting machine?

the mechanical advantage of a lifting machine is the ratio of load lifted to the effort applied.

Characteristic load is that value of load which has a 95 percent probability of not being exceeded during the life time of the structure. In absence of any data, loads given in various standards shall be assumed as the characteristic loads. The following standards may be used for this purpose.

## What is the law of machine?

Ans: “Law of machine is an equation which states the relation between effort & load. “ Law of machine is important because using it we can find effort required for certain load or load that can be lifted with given effort.

## What is used for lifting?

A hoist: is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope or chain wraps.

## What is simple lifting machine?

A lever simple machine consists of a load, a fulcrum and effort (or force). The load is the object that is moved or lifted. The fulcrum is the pivot point, and the effort is the force required to lift or move the load.

## How do you calculate load?

Take the total load and divide it by the maximum recommended load to get a percentage. For example, if the total loads add up to 800 watts and this is a 20 amp circuit, then the load usage is 800 watts divided by 1920 watts which equals 0.416 or 42 percent.

## What is the function of a load?

An electrical load is an electrical component or portion of a circuit that consumes (active) electric power. This is opposed to a power source, such as a battery or generator, which produces power. In electric power circuits examples of loads are appliances and lights.

noun. anything put in or on something for conveyance or transportation; freight; cargo: The truck carried a load of watermelons. the quantity that can be or usually is carried at one time, as in a cart. … a great quantity or number: loads of fun; loads of people. the charge for a firearm.

## What are the different types of load?

Live loads are temporary loads; they are applied to the structure on and off over the life of the structure. The most common types of live loads are occupancy (floor) load, workers during construction and maintenance, snow, wind and seismic.

## What is a imposed load?

Imposed load is defined as the load that is applied to the structure that is not permanent and can be variable.

## What is difference between load and weight?

As nouns the difference between load and weight is that load is a burden; a weight to be carried while weight is the force on an object due to the gravitational attraction between it and the earth (or whatever astronomical object it is primarily influenced by).

## Is force equal to weight?

The weight of an object is a measure of the force exerted on the object by gravity, or the force needed to support it. The pull of gravity on the earth gives an object a downward acceleration of about 9.8 m/s2.
