(d) Its dryness fraction remains constant


S1. Ans (b)
Sol. For an adiabatic process, there is no heat transfer to or from the system through the boundary.

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Difference between saturated steam temperature and superheated steam temperature
at same pressure is known as degree of superheat.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Universal coupling or Hook’s joint is used to connect to non-parallel or intersecting

S4. Ans (a)
Sol. Extensive properties are those properties which depend on mass of the system. E.g. Volume, mass, entropy etc.

S5. Ans (c)
Sol. Internal Energy and enthalpy are the function of temperature only for perfect gases.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. We know that
Kinetic Energy of gases (K.E.)=3/2(kT)
Where, k=Boltzmann’s constant
and T=absolute temperature of gas.
When, T=0 then K.E.=0

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Spring stiffness (k)=(Load (W))/(Deflection(∆))

S8. (a)
Sol. A screw is specified by its major diameter and pitch.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Kelvin-Planck’s statement is valid for heat engine.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. During adiabatic expansion of wet steam, dryness fraction may decrease due to cooling
or it may increase due to friction.
