    1. Explain the factors involved in selecting the appropriate type of abrasive for a particular grinding operation. '
    Sol: Some of the common factors while choosing the type of abrasive are:
    1. The hardness and strength of the material
    2. Whether the work piece is too slender or flexible to support the grinding operation
    3. The shape of the part - for instance, the intern al and external profiles, internal dimensions
    4. Surface finish and dimensional accuracy
    5. Temperature rise or residual stresses in the work piece

    2. What are the consequences of allowing the temperatures to rise during grinding? (Q. 25.38).
    Temperature rise during grinding is an important consideration, because it can adversely affect the surface properties and cause residual stresses on the work piece. Temperature gradients in the work piece ...
