Explain how to use a micrometer to measure cam lobe wear.

Expert Solution
To determine

Steps used to measure cam lobe wear by a micrometer.

Answer to Problem 1RQ

We can measure cam lobe wear by micrometer.

Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

Cam lobe wear.

Step 1: take camshaft and put in a straight surface, the extended surface on the camshaft is called lobe. Normally lobe size is half circular and half extended.

Step 2: take a micrometer and measure two measurements linear and lateral of the lobe.

Step 3: now extended measurement is more than half circular measurement. Now subtract both measurements.

Step 4: now we have subtracted measurement which is lobe size.

Step 5: this operation is done on two or three lobes.

Step 6: now see the variation in the all the three readings, this is lobe wear.

Conclusion:

We can measure cam lobe wear by a micrometer.
