Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol: Pabs = Patm + Pgauge

S2. Ans.(c)

S3. Ans.(b)

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. μ = 0.0034 Ns/m²
G = 1.3
γ = 3
γ = μ/ρ = μ/(Gγ_ω )
⇒ (0.0034 Ns/m^2 )/(1.3×1000 kg/m³)
⇒ 2.6 × 10^(–6) m²/sec.

S5. Ans.(a)

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. ¯h = (I_G sin²θ)/(A¯X) + ¯X
For vertically θ = 90°
[¯h = (I_G sin²θ)/(A¯X) + ¯X]
S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. 1 millibar = 10^(–3) bar
= 10^(–3) × 10^5 N/m²
= 100 N/m²
1 mm of Hg = (1×13.6×1000×9.81)/1000
= 133.416 N/m²
1 N/mm² = 10^6 N/m²
1 kgf/cm² = (1×9.81 N)/10^(–4) = 9.81 × 10^4 N/m²

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Hydraulic Radius = (C⁄s Area)/(Wetter Perimeter) ▭(R=A/P)
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. due to the surface tension is in balance with the internal pressure and the droplet form into sphere which is the shape for minimum surface area.
