(a) Extra light bearing
(b) Light bearing
(c) Medium bearing
(d) Heavy bearing

Q9. Y-alloy is an alloy of
(a) Nickel
(b) Aluminium
(c) Copper
(d) Tin

Q10. The ultimate tensile strength of low carbon steel by working at high strain rate will

Solutions

S1. Ans (c)
Sol. Critical speed of a turbine is the speed of revolutions which is equal to natural frequency of vibration.

S2. Ans (c)
Sol. A single fixed-point temperature scale is based on triple point of water. Triple point of water is that point on P-T diagram at which solid, liquid and vapour phases co-exist together.

S3. Ans (c)
Sol. Flow on a flat plate,
Reynolds number < 5×10^5 (Laminar flow)
Reynolds number > 5×10^5 (Turbulent flow)

S4. Ans (c)
Sol. Metacentric height (distance between metacentre, M and center of gravity, G) decides the stability of a floating body.
If GM > 0 then (Stable)
If GM = 0 then (Neutral)
If GM < 0 then (Unstable)

S5. Ans (b)
Sol. Mach number =√((Inertia Force)/(Elastic Force))
This is applicable for compressible flow.

S6. Ans (a)
Sol. According to Newton’s Second law
F=m.a ………………(1)
Given,
m=100 kg
a=5 m/s^2
From equation (1)
F=100×5
F=500 N

S7. Ans (d)
Sol. When a circular shaft is subjected to torsion then the shear stress will vary according to the following Torsion equation-
T/J=τ/r
τ∝r
So, shear force is zero at the axis and linearly increases to a maximum value at the surface of the shaft.

S8. Ans (d)
Sol. There are following mainly four series of bearings:
1. Extra light (100)
2. Light (200)
3. Medium (300)
4. Heavy (400)
A bearing designated with number 408 then it is used for heavy purposes. This bearing has a bore of 40 mm.

S9. Ans (b)
Sol. Y-alloy is an alloy of aluminium. Other constituents of this alloy are Copper (4%), Nickel (2%), Magnesium (1.5%), Silicon (0.5%) and Iron (0.5%) etc.

S10. Ans (a)
Sol. Ultimate tensile strength of low carbon steel increases when it is worked upon with high strain rate due to increase in number of dislocations in the material.
