By Mohit Uniyal|Updated : July 18th, 2022

The metal suitable for bearings subjected to light loads is

(a) Silicon bronze
(b) White metal
(c) Monel metal
(d) Phosphor bronze 

Find the correct answer from the given options.

Answer:- (d)- Phosphor bronze 

The metal suitable for bearings subjected to light loads is Phosphor bronze.

Solution:- 

  • In case of bearing subjected to light load, high fatigue strength, high wear resistance, and abrasive resistance. 
  • Phosphorus has been added in small amounts of up to 0.2% to improve the corrosion resistance and toughness. Phosphorus is added to improve machinability in low alloy steel. It adds strength and increases corrosion resistance.
  • Phosphor-Bronze alloy of steel is used to manufacture bearing subjected to light load.
