S1. Ans (d)
Sol. We know that pressure head loss in a pipe is given by Darcy-Weisbach’s equation.
Here, h decreases with increasing diameter and decreasing length of the pipe.

S2. Ans (a)
Sol. In simple harmonic motion, acceleration of a particle is proportional to the displacement from the mean position.
i.e. Acceleration ∝ -(Displacement)
Acceleration is minimum at the mean position and maximum at the end positions.

S3. Ans (b)
Sol. We know that Fourier’s law of conduction for heat flow rate is given by
Q= -kA(dT/dx)
Q increases with increasing area and temperature difference and Q decreases with increasing thickness of the wall along the heat flow.

S4. Ans (d)
Sol. Stress is defined as internal resistance invoked by a body to the external forces. If there is no external force on the body then there is no stress in it. Hence, in an unconstrained steel bar, there is no stress due to heating.

S5. Ans (d)
Sol. Blade tip speed for a rotor is given by
V=rω …………(1)
N= 1200 rpm then ω=2πN/60=(2×22×1200)/(60×7)
From equation (1)
V=88 m/s

S6. Ans (b)
Sol. Internal energy is defined by first law of thermodynamics. It is a property of a thermodynamic system. So, it is path-independent function.

S7. Ans (c)
Sol. According to Avogadro’s Law,
1 mole (or 32 grams) of oxygen gas contains 6.023 × 10^23 molecules, so, 64 grams of oxygen gas contains 12.046 × 10^23 molecules.
1 molecule (or 32 grams) of oxygen gas has 2 mole-atoms, hence 64 grams (or 2 molecules) of oxygen gas has four mole-atoms or 24.092 × 10^23 atoms.

S8. Ans (a)
Sol. We know that
Pressure intensity at a point (P) = ρgh
height of fluid or water (h)=P/(ρg) = (4×10000)/(1000×10)
height of fluid or water (h)=4 m

S9. Ans (a)
Sol. Up-milling is a milling process in which cutter moves in the opposite direction of work-piece motion. It is also called conventional milling process because of its cutter motion opposite to the work-piece.

S10. Ans (b)
Sol. Square thread is used for high power transmission due to its highest efficiency in all other given threads.
