QUESTION: 1

### If the velocity distribution over a plate is given by u = 2/3 y – y2 which v is the velocity in m/s at a distance y meter above the plate. The value of shear stress at y = 0 and y = 0.15m. Take dynamic viscosity of fluid as 8.63 poise.

Solution:  QUESTION: 2

### A globe valve is the most suitable for applications, in which

Solution:

Butterfly valve: Regulates discharge
Ball valve: Maintains constant level in elevated tank
Foot valve: used in end of suction pipe
Globe valve: Similar to water tap, thus control fluid flow. Flow change its direction 90 degree twice to increase the head loss.
Pilot valve: Control high pressure and is used in emergency and safety controls.

QUESTION: 3

### In the inclined manometer shown in figure below, the reservoir is large. Its surface may be assumed to remain at a fixed elevation. A is connected to a gas pipeline and the deflection noted on the inclined glass tube is 100 mm. Assuming θ = 30° and the manometric fluid as oil with specific gravity of 0.86, the pressure at A is Solution:

Total pressure at A will be equal to the pressure at the surface of manometric fluid because above the surface, the gas pipeline is connected.
Pressure at A = 100 sin 30° mm of oil = 50 mm of oil QUESTION: 4

Solution:  QUESTION: 6

Through a very narrow gap of height ‘h’ a thin plate of large extent is pulled at a velocity ‘v’. On upper side of the plate is oil is viscosity u1 and the other side of oil of viscosity u2 . At what distance from the lower surface the plate should be placed so that pull required to drag the plate is minimum

Solution:  QUESTION: 7

The compartment B and C shown in the figure below are closed and filled with air the barometer reads 99.572 kN/m2. When the gauges A and D reads as indicated what should be the value of x for gauge E. (mercury is the monometric liquid in each U tube gauge) Solution:

If P is the pressure intensity of air in compartment C in terms of obsolute unit then

QUESTION: 8

A cylinder 2.4 m diameter weights 2 kN and rests on the bottom of tank which is 1 m long. As shown in figure, water and oil are poured in to the left and right hand portions of the tank to depths 0.6 m and 1.2 m respectively. The magnitude of horizontal and vertical components of force which will keep the cylinder touching the tank at B will be respectively. Solution:   QUESTION: 9

Consider the following

The components of velocity u and v along X and Y directions in a 2D flow problem of an incompressible fluid are

1. u = x2 cos y; v = – 2x sin y
2. u = x + 2; v = 1 – y
3. u = xyt; v = x3 – y2t/2
4. u = ln x + y; v = xy – y/x

Which of these will satisfy the continuity equation?
