Option
A. 40 RPM.

Option
B. 360 RPM.

Option
C. 144 RPM.

Correct
Answer is. 360 RPM.

Explanation. The
speed ratio is the reciprocal of the gear ratio.The spur gear with 48
teeth is driven by a pinion gear of of 16 teeth. This gives a gear
ratio of 48:16 = 3:1. This means the spur gear will turn at 1/3 of
the speed of the pinion gear, and the pinion gear will turn at 3
times the speed of the spur gear. If the spur gear turns at a speed
of 120 RPM the pinion turns at a speed of 360 RPM.

values divided by the difference in the x values; m =2/3, The
intercept on the y axis is 0, that is when x = 0 ; c = 0, The
gradient of a straight line is of the form y = mx + c so we get y =

Option
A. Negative infinity.

Option
B. 0.

Option
C. Positive infinity.

Correct
Answer is. Positive infinity.

Explanation. Technically,
the tan curve goes off the graph to + infinity at 90 degrees, but
then comes back on at - infinity at the same point. Choose + infinity
for the answer here (since it goes to +infinity first).

Answer is. 45 degrees.

Explanation. An
isosceles right angled triangle has two 45 degree angles. The size
of the two sides that are not the hypotenuse are the same. This
means that both the sine which is opposite/hypotenuse and the cosine
which is adjacent/hypotenuseis the same as the adjacent = opposite in
this case.
