SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Bulk modulus

K = – ∆P/(∆V/V)

K= -[(0.04×[150-50])/(0.039-0.04)]=4000 N\/cm^2

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol. As we know that

⇒ With increasing temp. viscosity of liquid decrease because as we increase the temperature which cause decreases the cohesive forces between modulus so that viscosity is decrease

⇒ with increasing temp. viscosity of gas increases because as we increase the temp. which cause increase the rate of molecules momentum transfer which is the main reason of viscous forces within the gases. So that viscosity in increase.

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. 760 torr = 1 atmospheric pressure

760 mm = 1 atmospheric pressure

i.e. 1 mm of mercury = 760 torr

it is on the name of Torricelli

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol. Pressure (P) = ρ.gh

= 1000×9.81×1

= 9810 Pa.

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. Cross-sectioning and profile leveling survey is employed for collecting sufficient data in connection with sewage disposal and water supply works.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol. Direct vernier – division which are slightly shorter than main scale. Reading increases in the direction of the main scale.

→ n division of vernier is equal to (n-1) division of main scale.

Retrograde vernier – Division which are slightly longer than main scale. Reading increases in a direction opposite to main scale. n division of vernier (n+1) division of main scale.

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. A line joining some fixed stations on main survey line is tie line. Tie line is used to locate the interior details which are comparatively for away from the main survey line.

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. In well condition triangle angle (θ) should be in range of 30° to 120°

▭(30≤θ≤120)

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol. substance bar is used to measure 90° Angle in any point & drawing perpendicular by exterior point & also used to measure horizontal distance.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. fore bearing of line ‘AB’ = 119°48’

Fore baring is less than 180° so we calculate back bearing by adding 180°. If fore bearing greater than 180° than we subtract 180° from it.

Back bearing of line AB = 180°+〖119°48〗^’=〖299°48〗^’
