(a) Both the balls undergo an equal change in momentum
(b) the change in momentum suffered by rubber ball is more than the lead ball

(b) becomes 9 times
(c) becomes 27 times
(d) remains the same

Q10. Anything that generates entropy always:

S1. Ans (d)
Sol. Gating system has the following parts for a casting:
1. Pouring basin
2. Sprue
3. Choke

S2. Ans (a)
Sol. Weld spatter is usually seen when the welding voltage is too low or the amperage is too high for a given wire and gas combination.

S3. Ans (b)
Sol. Machinability index designates the degree of difficulty or ease with which a particular material can be machined. A good machinability rating or index represents long tool life, low power requirement and a good surface finish.

S4. Ans (c)
Sol. Stepper motors are DC motors that move in discrete steps. They have multiple coils that are organized in groups called phases. By energizing each phase in sequence, the motor will rotate, one step at a time.

S5. Ans (c)
Sol. The preferred order of sequence of the drives from high to low speed:
1. Worm and worm wheel
2. Rack and pinion
3. Spur gears

S6. Ans (b)
Sol. Given,
Angle of repose (θ) = 30°
Maximum efficiency of screw for motion up the inclined plane = (1-sinθ)/(1+sinθ)
= (1-sin30)/(1+sin30)
= 33.3%

S7. Ans (c)
Sol. Proof resilience is defined as the maximum energy that can be absorbed up to the elastic limit, without creating a permanent distortion.

S8. Ans (b)
Sol. As both lead and rubber balls have same mass and velocity, if rubber ball rebounds then there is more change in momentum of it than that of lead ball.

S9. Ans (c)
Sol. We know that
Power(P) ∝ Speed(N)^3
So, pump power requirement becomes 27 times the previous value.

S10. Ans (b)
Sol. If there is an entropy generation then definitely, there is a presence of temperature or pressure gradient. It means if pressure or temperature decreases then entropy generation takes place due to irreversibility.
