Sol. Capillary rise or fall
h = 4σcosθ/ρgd
But w(weight density) = ρg,
and cosθ for water and glass = 1
Sol. The frictional resistance as per law of fluid friction for steady streamline flow, depends on viscosity which causes the viscous forces between two adjacent layers. There is no relation between pressure and frictional resistance.
Sol. The bucket will not sink after releasing the force which was required to submerged because the bucket have negligible weight.
Sol. Continuum: In this approach we consider systems to be a continuous form of matter. It means that we do not consider the gaps/spaces between the atoms or molecules that are actually present. Instead, we consider a uniform distribution of matter with no spaces or gaps.
But in rarefied gas, gaps will be created among atoms and molecules, so this approach becomes invalid.
Sol. The correct order is super-heater, economizer, air preheater.
Sol. Diesel is directly injected in cylinder where it gets mixed with air.
Sol. Detonation in SI engine will become severe at high load and low speed because at
higher loads, the temperature of cylinder and combustion chamber walls will be higher
and hence temperature of the end charge will be more which increases knocking
tendency in SI engine.
And at lower engine speed, longer will be the absolute time for the flame to traverse the
cylinder which increases the time available for pre flame reactions hence the tendency to
