Consider the following statements :
1. The condition of stability of a governor requires that the slope of the controlling force curve should be less than that of the line representing the centripetal force at the equilibrium speed under consideration.
2. For a centrifugal governor when the load on the prime mover drops suddenly, the sleeve should at once reach the lower-most position.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct ?
Option (A)
Only 1
Option (B)
Only 2
Both 1 and 2
Neither 1 nor 2
Correct Option:
Question Solution:
For a governor to be stable, the slope of the curve of controlling force must be greater then slope of the straight line representing the force at the straight line representing the force at the speed considered
