(a) a stable lubrication and there is no metal to metal contact
(b) a stable lubrication because there is some amount of metal to metal contact
(c) an unstable lubrication because there is some amount of metal to metal contact
(d) an unstable lubrication because there is no metal to metal contact
S1. Ans (d)
∈ ∝ K^(1/2)
∈ ∝ P^(1/2)
Thus, fin effectiveness will increase if thermal conductivity and circumference increases.
S2. Ans (b)
Sol. Ericsson Cycle consists of two constant pressure processes and two isentropic processes.
S3. Ans (b)
Sol. Pool Boiling: In this case the liquid above the hot surface is essentially stagnant and its motion near the surface is due to free convection.
Forced Convection Boiling: This refers to a situation where the fluid motion is induced by external means. This type of boiling occurs in water tube boilers involving forced convection.
Sub-Cooled or Local Boiling: In this case the liquid temperature is below the saturation temperature and bubbles are formed in the vicinity of heat surface.
Saturated Boiling: Here, the liquid temperature exceeds the saturation temperature.
S4. Ans (c)
Sol. As water flows down the height its potential energy gets converted into kinetic energy, when water hits the runner, the kinetic energy gets converted into rotational mechanical energy of runner.
S5. Ans (d)
Sol. Since free expansion occurs against vacuum hence no work is done by the expanding fluid.
Sol. We know that
T = Time period
L = Length of pendulum
In order to double the period of simple pendulum, its length should be quadrupled.
Sol. Duralumin is an alloy, a trade name given to the earliest types of the age harden able aluminium alloys. It is an alloy made up of 90% aluminum,4% copper, 1% magnesium and 0.5% to 1% manganese.
Sol. In window AC capillary tube is used as an expansion device as it is cost effective and simple.
Sol. We know,
Buoyancy on body=weight of body in air-weight of body in water
specific gravity of solid body
=(density of body)/(density of standard liquid or water)
=(weight of body)/(buoyancy on body)
Sol. A thick lubrication is a stable lubrication and there is no metal to metal contact.
