A horizontal bar, fixed at one end (x = 0), has a length of 1 m, and cross-sectional area of 100mm2. Its elastic modulus varies along its length as given by E(x) = 100e-x GPa, Where x is the length coordinate (in m) along the axis of the bar. An axial tensile load of 10 kN is applied at the free end (x=1). The axial displacement of the free end is _______ mm.

Consider steady flow of an incompressible fluid through two long and straight pipes of diameters d1 and d2 arranged in series. Both pipes are of equal length and the flow is turbulent in both pipes. The friction factor for turbulent flow though pipes is of the form, f = K(Re)-n where K and n are known positive constants and Re is the Reynolds number. Neglecting minor losses, the ratio of the frictional pressure drop in pipe 1 to that in pipe 2,

is given by
