In simple words, a MAC address can be used to identify your Android phone on the Internet or on the local network.Lets begin...



Spoofing MAC Address on Android Devices

Even though MAC address is embedded on the hardware device during manufacture, it can still be spoofed to input a new one of your choice. Here is a detailed instruction on how to spoof MAC address on your Android phone.
Before you spoof the MAC address, you need to record the original/current MAC address of your device which can be done according to the instruction below:
  • On the Home Screen of your phone, tap the Menu button and go to Settings.
  • Tap About Device and go to Status.
  • Now scroll down to record the 12-digit code shown under Wi-Fi Mac address. An address would read something like:E5:12:D8:E5:69:97

 

Requirements for Spoofing the MAC Address:

  1. Rooted Android Phone
  2. BusyBox app installed on your phone

HOW INTERNAL EXPANDING BRAKE WORKS

By:Prayag nao


An internal expanding brake consists of two shoes S1 and S2. The outer surface of the shoes are lined with some friction material (usually with Ferodo) to increase the coefficient of friction and to prevent wearing away of the metal. Each shoe is pivoted at one end about a fixed fulcrum O1and O2 and made to contact a cam at the other end. When the cam rotates, the shoes are pushed outwards against the rim of the drum. The friction between the shoes and the drum produces the braking torque and hence reduces the speed of the drum. The shoes are normally held in
off position by a spring . The drum encloses the entire mechanism to keep out dust and moisture. This type of brake is commonly used in motor cars and light trucks.



We shall now consider the forces acting on such a brake, when the drum rotates in the anticlockwise direction. It may be noted that for the anticlockwise direction, the left hand shoe is known as leading or primary shoe while the right hand sho…
