(a) Ratio of heat and vapour diffusivities
(b) proportionality content between vapour heat flux and sensible heat flux.
(c) Ratio of acts at evapotranspiration and potential evapotranspiration.
(d) Propotionality constant between heat energy used up in evaporation and the bulk radiation from a water body
Q10. Identify the false statement from the following the specific speed of the pump increses with.
(a) increases in shaft speed
(b) increases in discharge
(c) decreases in gravitational acceleration
(d) increases in head.
Sol. Distemper is used to coat interior surface not exposed to weather. It is made with base as white chalk and thinner as water.
Sol. White lead is used as base for timber painting.
Sol. Pigments is used to hide the surface irregularities and imparts desired color to paints.
Sol. The plate bearing test is used to determine the supporting power of subgrade for used in pavement design. Plate bearing test was originally devised to find the modulus of subgrade reaction in the westergaards analysis for wheel load stress in cement concrete pavements.
400 V+10,000=1000 V
Traffic capacity = speed × density
Sol. specific speed of a pump is given by,
