(b) Is zero at the plates and increases linearly to the mid-plane
(c) Varies parabolically across the section
(d) Is zero in middle and increase linearly towards the plates

Q9. The total line lies over the hydraulic gradient line by an amount equal to:
(c) Sum of pressure, velocity and datum heads

Q10. A compound pipe system consists of 1800m of 50cm, 1200m of 40cm and 600m of 30cm cast iron pipes connected in series. If this system is converted into an equivalent length of 40 cm pipe, the length will be
(a) 4300m
(b) 4320 m
(c) 4310 m

SOUTION

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Francis turbine is inward flow radial reaction turbine.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. in a reaction turbine, there is only partial conversion of available heat to velocity head before entry to runner. Thus at entrance to reaction turbine the fluid will have both pressure energy as well as kinetic energy.

S3. Ans.(d)

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Weber number is the ratio of intertie force to surface tension.

S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Pelton wheel is the turbine comes in category of inward flow impulse turbine.

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. maximum actual efficiency.
When
V = 2u
u = 0.5 V
but,
Theoretically maximum efficiency.
▭(u=0.46V)

S7. Ans. (c)

Sol. ▭(Bulk modules = (Increase in pressure )/(volumetric strain ))
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol.

L₁ = 1800 m L₂ = 1200 m L₃ = 600 m
D₁ = 50 cm D₂ = 40 cm D₃ = 30 cm
→ In series connection discharge is constant
L/(D)^5 = L_1/(D_1 )^5 + L_2/(D_2 )^5 + L_3/(D_3 )^5
L_2/(40)^5 = 1800/(50)^5 + 1200/(40)^5 + 600/(30)^5

L = 4320 m
