Solutions

S1. Ans (b)

Sol. Because non-metallic amorphous solids contain air in the voids, so due to decrease in temperature, its thermal conductivity decreases.

S2. Ans (b)

Sol.

S3. Ans (c)

Sol. Coal carbonization is used for processing of coal to produce coke using metallurgical grade coal. Coal carbonization involves heating of coal in the absence of air.

S4. Ans (a)

Sol.

mmHg Vacuum

S5. Ans (a)

Sol. Impeller with backward curved vanes are preferred due to higher efficiency than that of forward curved vanes.

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol.

From geometry

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol.

f = g sinθ

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol.

Coriolis acceleration: ac = 2Vω

Depends upon angular velocity

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol.

(a) Production rate is high

(b) Unit cost per component is less

(c) Edged gated components can also be placed symmetrically around injection center line

(a) Initial investment is more

(b) with increase in number of cavities, the feed balancing and thermal balancing becomes more complicated.

S10. Ans.(d)

Sol. Helium arc welding is TIG welding, with helium as shielding gas, uses the electrode made of tungsten.
