Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 0.707

Concept:

The pitch factor for nth harmonic is given by,

\({k_c} = \cos \frac{{nα }}{2}\)

where α is the slot angle

Calculation:

The first coil lies in slots 1 and 16

Coil span is 16 – 1 = 15 slots

Number of empty slots = 18 – 15 = 3 slots

\(\therefore \alpha = 180^\circ \times \frac{3}{{18}} = 30^\circ\)

Pitch factor for 3rd harmonic, \({k_{{c_3}}} = \cos \left( {\frac{{3 \times 30^\circ }}{2}} \right)\)

= 0.707
