The hydraulic grade line for flow in a pipe of constant internal diameter ______.
For the pipe of constant diameter, the hydraulic gradient line is always sloping down in the direction of flow and is parallel to total energy line and the difference between both the lines represents velocity head. Due to hf(head loss due to friction) along the length of pipe, H.G.L always sloping down.
A hydraulic jump occurs when the grade changes from:
When the flow conditions changes form super critical (Fr > 1) to subcritical (Fr < 1), this results to an abrupt rise of water accompanied by turbulent rollers is called as hydraulic Jump or standing wave.
The hydraulic Jump occurs when the grade changes from sleep to mild
In an orifice used for flow measurement, the coefficient of velocity is always:
Coefficient of velocity through orifice =ActualvelocityTheoreticalvelocity
Vtheo > Vact
So, Cv is always less than 1.
The centre of pressure on inclined immersed surface remains valid for the centre of pressure on vertical immersed surface, if the angle (θ) at immersed surface with liquid surface is:
Centre of Pressure on a Immersed surface from water surface is given by:
For vertical surface θ = 90°
So, the formula is valid for θ = 90°
The mechanical efficiency of an impulse turbine is generally between:
Mechanical efficiency of Impulse turbine is given by:
It generally varies between 97 to 99
Also, volumetric efficiency (ηv) = 97 to 99
Overall efficiency (ηo) = 85 to 90
Which of the following is CORRECT about the viscosity of gas?
As temperature increases, randomness in molecules also increases. This increase in randomness will result in increase in viscosity as viscosity of gas depends on randomness & collision of gas molecules.
Phenomenon: As a gas is heated, the movement of gas molecules increases and the probability that one gas molecule will collide with another gas molecule increases. In other words, increasing gas temperature causes the gas molecules to collide more often. This increases the gas viscosity because the transfer of momentum between stationary and moving molecules is what causes gas viscosity.
Pressure of 200 kPa is equivalent to the head of z metre of liquid having relative density 1.59. The value of z (m) is _____.
200 kPa = 200,000 Pa
200,000 Pa = 200,000 N/m²
Pressure in liquids is calculate by the formula:
P = αgh
Where P = pressure, α = density, g = force of gravity, and h = height
Taking g = 10
αgh = 200,000
1590 x 10 x h = 200,000
h = 200,000/15900
h = 12.58 m

For continuity to be satisfied
-2 + 2 = 0
The term alternate depths in open channel flow is used to designate the depths
For a given discharge Q in a channel, there will be two depths for a given specific energy. These two depths are known as alternate depths.
If a thin plate is held parallel to fluid stream the pressure drag on it is:
Viscous forces and pressure forces are responsible for drag forces. There are two types of drag forces present pressure drag and skin friction drag. Pressure drag is due to the wake region behind the body and skin friction drag is due to the viscosity of the fluid.
In case of flow over a thin plate placed parallel to a stream of flowing fluid, the flow separation (if occurs), would occur only towards the rear end and the wake is negligibly small. The resulting pressure drag will also be very small, approximate to zero.
On the other hand, pressure drag will be large when the thin plate is held perpendicular to the flow.
Two pumps can operate independently at heads H1, H2 and discharges Q1, Q2, respectively. If the pumps are connected in parallel, then what are the resulting discharge (Q) and head (H)?
Pumps in Parallel:
Same Head: H = H1 = H2
Add the discharge: Q = Q1 + Q2
Pumps in Series:
Same Discharge: Q = Q1 = Q2
Add the heads: H = H1 + H2
An isentropic process is always...
In thermodynamics an isentropic process is an idealized thermodynamic process. that is both adiabatic and reversible. The work transfer of system is friction-less and there is no transfer of heat as matter.
A centrifugal pump delivers a liquid when pressure rise in impeller is equal to _______
Manometric head is the head against which head is required to be produced by the pump to deliver water to the destination. Manometric head is higher than the sum of suction and delivery heads because it accounts for head losses due to friction.
Separation of flow occurs when pressure gradient
Flow separation occurs when the pressure gradient is positive and velocity gradient is negative.

A pump delivers water at a rate of 0.025 m3/s against a head of 30 m. If the overall efficiency of the pump is 75%, the power required by the pump is:
A streamlined body is defined as a body about which ________.
A stream lined body is defined as the body whose surface coincides with the stream - lines, when the body is placed in a flow. In that case the separation of flow will take place only at trailing edge (or rearmost part of the body).
Behind a stream lined body, wake formation zone will be very small and consequently the pressure drag will be very small. Thus the total drag on the stream lined body will be due to friction (shear) only.
