(c) 180°
(d) 135°

Solutions

S1. Ans (c)
Sol. Diamond box is used to give a condition for decision making in a flow chart.

S2. Ans (d)
Sol. We know that
dS=δQ/T+δS(entropy-generation)
δQ=0
dS= δS(entropy-generation)
dS>0

S3. Ans (c)
Sol. Flow work is analogous to displacement work and is defined as the work needed to displace a fluid element from one point to another. It is valid for open system. E.g. Turbine, compressor etc.

S4. Ans (c)
Sol. Most of the radiation emitted from the sun in form of solar radiation are electromagnetic waves. 99% of the solar radiation are visible and infrared radiation and rest is ultraviolet radiation.

S5. Ans (c)
Sol. Shape factor or view factor of a body with respect to another body is defined as the part of radiation emitted from one body to another body.
If two infinite parallel plates are kept at a distance x then whole of the radiation emitted from one plate will project on another body. Hence, view factor is 1.

S6. Ans (b)
Sol. Pelton turbine is a high head turbine and head needed for this turbine ranges from 50 meter to 1500 m.

S7. Ans (c)
Sol. pH of boiler feed water should be greater than 7 because water needed for the boiler should not be acidic otherwise it will corrode boiler tubes and other parts. Normal range of pH should be 7.8 to 8.9.

S8. Ans (c)
Sol. When the joint is subjected to large vibration then it should be welded, so that it will not be loosen.

S9. Ans (b)
Sol. Coriollis acceleration acts on a sliding body which is sliding on a rotating body, such as slotted-lever quick return motion mechanism. Coriollis acceleration leads the sliding velocity of slider by 90°.

S10. Ans (b)
Sol. Set screws exerts compressional or clamping force through the bottom tip that projects through the hole.
