313 lb/in3. 85 lb. At least 2 caplets are required beneath to resist the weight of the core. Probably 3 or 4 caplets would be better to achieve stability. 73 lb. 88 lb. A total of 9 caplets are required above the core to resist the buoyancy force. 4 A sand core used to form the internal surfaces of a steel casting experiences a buoyancy force of 23 kg. The volume of the mold cavity forming the outside surface of the casting = 5000 cm3. What is the weight of the final casting? Ignore considerations of shrinkage.

17 A disk-shaped part is to be cast out of aluminum. The diameter of the disk = 500 mm and its thickness = 20 mm. 0 sec/mm2 in Chvorinov's Rule, how long will it take the casting to solidify? 18 In casting experiments performed using a certain alloy and type of sand mold, it took 155 sec for a cube-shaped casting to solidify. The cube was 50 mm on a side. (a) Determine the value of the mold constant Cm in Chvorinov's Rule. (b) If the same alloy and mold type were used, find the total solidification time for a cylindrical casting in which the diameter = 30 mm and length = 50 mm.
