Hello
Every computer user has faced this problem. What I speak of, is the tragedy of the corrupted USB Pen drive or SD Card. No matter what you do, at some point, your computer simply refuses to read your USB drive. Fortunately, there are ways to rectify this with one only needing to use a command prompt in PC.

Step 1:
Connect the corrupted drive to your machine.

Open the command prompt either by typing cmd in the Start menu search bar or by hitting Windows Key + R  followed by typing cmd in the dialog box that pops up.

Step 3:

In the command prompt, enter the following commands.
Type diskpart and press Enter.
Next type list disk and press Enter.

Step 4:

Then type select disk followed by the number of your disk and hit enter.

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…

Awesome iris mechanism

An iris is a mechanism that is used as a compact solution to close and open holes. It is made up of usually a series of metal plates that can fold in on each other or expand out. Iris mechanisms are commonly found in optical shutters (diaphragms). Irises are sometimes used in science fiction as doors.
