A rectangular hole of size $100$ $mm \times 50$ $mm$ is to be made on a $5$ $mm$ thick sheet of steel having ultimate tensile strength and shear strength of $500$ $MPa$ and $300$ $MPa$, respectively. The hole is made by punching process. Neglecting the effect of clearance, the punching force (in $kN$) is $300$ $450$ $600$ $750$

A cantilever beam of length, $L$, with uniform cross-section and flexural rigidity, $EI$, is loaded uniformly by a vertical load, $w$ per unit length. The maximum vertical deflection of the beam is given by $\dfrac{wL^4}{8EI} \\$ $\dfrac{wL^4}{16EI} \\$ $\dfrac{wL^4}{4EI} \\$ $\dfrac{wL^4}{24EI}$

The flexural rigidity $(EI)$ of a cantilever beam is assumed to be constant over the length of the beam shown in figure. If a load $P$ and bending moment $PL/2$ are applied at the free end of the beam then the value of the slope at the free end is $\dfrac{1}{2}\dfrac{PL^2}{EI} \\$ $\dfrac{PL^2}{EI} \\$ $\dfrac{3}{2}\dfrac{PL^2}{EI} \\$ $\dfrac{5}{2}\dfrac{PL^2}{EI}$
