A cutting tool provides a tool life of 60 minutes while machining with the cutting speed of 60 m/min. When the same tool is used for machining the same material, it provides a tool life of 10 minutes for a cutting speed of 100 m/min. If the cutting speed is changed to 80 m/min for the same tool and work material combination, the tool life computed using Taylor’s tool life model is _______ minutes (rounded off to 2 decimal places).

During the turning of a $$20$$ $$mm-$$diameter steel bar at a spindle speed of $$400$$ $$rpm,$$ a tool life of $$20$$ minute is obtained. When the same bar is turned at $$200$$ $$rpm,$$ the tool life becomes $$60$$ $$minute.$$ Assume that Taylor's tool life equation is valid. When the bar is turned at $$300$$ $$rpm,$$ the tool life (in minute) is approximately

Two cutting tools with tool life equations given below are being compared:
\eqalign{ & Tool\,\,1:\,\,\,\,\,\,\,V{T^{0.1}} = 150 \cr & Tool\,\,2:\,\,\,\,\,\,\,V{T^{0.3}} = 300 \cr}
where $$V$$ is cutting speed in $$m/minute$$ and $$T$$ is tool life in minutes. The breakeven cutting speed beyond which Tool $$2$$ will have a higher tool life is _______________ $$m/minute$$.
