a) gain of 0.424 mJ

b) gain of 0.212 mJ

c) loss of 0.212 mJ

d) loss of 0.424 mJ

Answer: b

Explanation: According to the Principle of Conservation of mass, M = 1000 * m, where M = mass of the big drop, m = mass of each droplet. Assuming density to be constant, D3 = 1000 * d3, i.e. D = 10d, where D = diameter of big drop, d = diameter of a droplet.

Change in surface energy = Surface tension * Change in surface area = 0:075*(1000 * πd2 – πD2) = 0:075 * (10 * πD2 – πD2) = 0:075 * 9π * (10-2)2 = 0:212 mJ Since, the change is positive, there will be a gain in the surface energy.

**31. Which of the following statement is true about vapor pressure of a liquid?**

a) Vapor pressure is closely related to molecular activity and temperature of the liquid

b) Vapor pressure is closely related to molecular activity but independent of the temperature of the liquid

c) Vapor pressure is not affected by molecular activity and temperature of the liquid

d) Vapor pressure is not affected by molecular activity and is independent of the temperature of the liquid

Answer: a

Explanation: The vapor pressure of a liquid at a given temperature is given by the pressure ex-erted by the saturated vapor on the liquid surface. When the vapor is saturated, an equilibrium exists between the liquid and the vapor phases. The number of molecules leaving the liquid surface is equal to the number of molecules entering the liquid surface. Hence, it is obvious that vapor pressure will be related to molecular activity and consequently to temperature. With the increase in temperature molecular activity increases as a result of which vapor pressure increases.

**32. Which of the following equation correctly depicts the relation between the vapor pressure of a liquid and it’s temperature?**

a) Vapor pressure increases linearly with the increase in temperature of the liquid

c) Vapor pressure increases rapidly with the increase in temperature of the liquid at low temperatures and the rate of increase goes low at higher temperatures

d) Vapor pressure remains unchanged with the increase in temperature of the liquid

Answer: b

Explanation: Vapor pressure is closely related to molecular activity which is in turn dependant on the temperature of the liquid. With the increase in temperature molecular activity of a vapor increases slowly at first and then rapidly. Similar is the nature of variaion of vapor pressure.

**33. Which of the following is the condition for the boiling of a liquid?**

a) Absolute pressure of a liquid must be greater than or equal to it’s vapor pressure

b) Absolute pressure of a liquid must be less than or equal to it’s vapor pressure

c) Absolute pressure of a liquid must be equal to it’s vapor pressure

d) Absolute pressure of a liquid must be greater than it’s vapor pressure

Answer: b

Explanation: As the absolute pressure of a liquid goes below it’s vapor pressure, the formation of vapor bubbles start. Thus, for boiling to start, the absolute pressure of a liquid must be less than or equal to it’s vapor pressure.

**34. Which of the following machines have the possibility of cavitation?**

a) Reaction turbines and centrifugal pumps

b) Reaction turbines and reciprocating pumps

c) Impulse turbines and centrifugal pumps

a) liquid 1

b) liquid 2

c) liquid 3

d) they will start boiling at the same time

Answer: a

Explanation: A liquid starts to boil whenever it’s absolute pressure drops below it’s vapor pressure. Thus, the absolute pressure of liquid 1 will drop early, as a result it’ll start boiling early.

**36. Equal amount of a particular liquid is poured into three similar containers, namely 1, 2 and 3, at a temperature of T1, T2 and T3 respectively. If T1 < T2 < T3, the liquid in which container will have the highest vapor pressure?**

a) container 1

b) container 2

c) container 3

d) the vapor pressure of the liquid will remain the same irrespective of it’s temperature

**2. What type of flow can be taken for granted in a pipe of a uniform cross-section?**

a) steady

b) unsteady

c) uniform

d) non-uniform

Answer: c

Explanation: According to the continuity equation, ρAV =constant, where ρ= density, A= cross-sectional area of flow, V = velocity of flow. For a pipe of a uniform cross-section, no matter what the rate of flow is, the velocity of flow inside the pipe will always remain constant. Hence, it’ll always be a uniform flow. It’ll be a steady flow if and only if the water level is maintained at a constant level by supplying water at the same rate as it gets discharged, else the water level will keep decreasing with time leading to an unsteady flow.

**3. Can the flow inside a nozzle be steady and uniform?**

a) yes

b) never

c) it can be steady but never uniform

d) it can be uniform but never steady

Answer: c

Explanation: According to the continuity equation, ρAV =constant, where ρ= density, A= cross-sectional area of flow, V = velocity of flow. For a nozzle, the area gradually decreases towards it’s exit. Thus, no matter what the rate of flow is, the velocity of flow at the nozzle exit will always be greater than that at it’s entrance. Hence, it’ll always be an unsteady flow. It can be a steady flow if and only if the water level is maintained at a constant level by supplying water at the same rate as it gets discharged, else the water level will keep decreasing with time leading to an unsteady flow.

**4. Which of the following statements is true regarding one and two-dimensional flows?**

a) Flow in a pipe is always taken as one-dimensional flow

b) Flow in a pipe is always taken as two-dimensional flow

c) Flow in a pipe is taken as one-dimensional flow when average flow parameters are considered

d) Flow in a pipe is taken as two-dimensional flow when average flow parameters are considered

Answer: c

Explanation: The flow inside a pipe can be described by the cylindrical co-ordinate system (r; θ; z), where r is in the radial direction, θ in the angular direction and z in the axial direction. For a circular cross-sections, the flow can be taken to be independent of θ. Hence, it can be taken aa a two-dimensional flow. Again if aerage flow parameters are considered to account for the variation in the radial direction, the flow can be taken as an one-dimensional flow.

**5. Which of the following is true?**

a) Flow is rotational inside the boundary layer and irrotational outside

b) Flow is irrotational inside the boundary layer and rotational outside

c) Flow is rotational both inside and outside of the boundary layer

d) Flow is irrotational both inside and outside of the boundary layer

Answer: a

Explanation: When a torque is applied to a fluid particle, it undergoes a rotation. Thus, the rotation of a fluid particle will alwayds be associated with shear stress. Shear stress is in turn dependent on the viscosity. Hence, rotational flow occurs where the viscosity effects are predominant. Since, viscosity effects are predominant inside the blundary layer, the flow will be rotational in this region. However, outside the boundary layer, the viscosity effects are negligible. Hence, flow can be treated as irrotational outside the boundary layer.

**6. Which of the following is true?**

a) Flow is laminar inside the boundary layer and turbulent outside

b) Flow is turbulent inside the boundary layer and laminar outside

c) Flow is laminar both inside and outside of the boundary layer

d) Flow is turbulent both inside and outside of the boundary layer

Answer: a

Explanation: Flows can be characterized as laminar or turbulent on the basis of Reynold’s number Re = ρvd / μ, where ρ is the density, d is the pipe diameter and μ is the viscosity. For Re < 2000, the flow will be laminar and Re > 4000, the ow will be turbulent. For laminar flow, the viscosity effects must be high (μ should be high) as inside the boundary layer. Outside the boundary layer, the viscosity effects are negligible. Hence, the flow will be turbulent.

**7. “The velocity of entrance and exit through a nozzle remains the same.” Is this ever possible?**

a) only if the flow is compressible

b) only if the flow is laminar

c) only if the flow is rotational

d) never possible

Answer: a

Explanation: According to the continuity equation, ρAV =constant, where ρ= density, A= cross sectional area of flow, V = velocity of flow. If v =constant, ρA =constant. Thus a change is A will mean a change in ρ. Hence, the flow is possible only if the fluid is compressible.
