Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 1

A cylindrical tank has a hole of diameter 2r in its bottom. The hole is covered wooden cylindrical block of diameter 4r, height h and density ρ/3.

Situation I : Initially, the tank is filled with water of density ρ to a height such that the height of water above the top of the block is h1 (measured from the top of the block).

Situation II : The water is removed from the tank to a height h2 (measured from the bottom of the block), as shown in the figure.
The height h2 is smaller than h (height of the block) and thus the block is exposed to the atmosphere.

Q. Find the minimum value of height h1 (in situation 1), for which the block just starts to move up?

A cylindrical tank has a hole of diameter 2r in its bottom. The hole is covered wooden cylindrical block of diameter 4r, height h and density ρ/3.

Situation I : Initially, the tank is filled with water of density ρ to a height such that the height of water above the top of the block is h1 (measured from the top of the block).

Situation II : The water is removed from the tank to a height h2 (measured from the bottom of the block), as shown in the figure.
The height h2 is smaller than h (height of the block) and thus the block is exposed to the atmosphere.

Q. Find the height of the water level h2 (in situation 2), for which the block remains in its original position without the application of any external force

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 2

KEY CONCEPT : Considering equilibrium of wooden block.
Total downward force = Total force upwards Wt. of block + force due to atmospheric pressure = Force due to pressure of liquid + Force due to atmospheric pressure



Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 3

A cylindrical tank has a hole of diameter 2r in its bottom. The hole is covered wooden cylindrical block of diameter 4r, height h and density ρ/3.

Situation I : Initially, the tank is filled with water of density ρ to a height such that the height of water above the top of the block is h1 (measured from the top of the block).

Situation II : The water is removed from the tank to a height h2 (measured from the bottom of the block), as shown in the figure.
The height h2 is smaller than h (height of the block) and thus the block is exposed to the atmosphere.

Q. In situation 2, if h2 is further decreased, then

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 3

When the height h2 of water level is further decreased, then the upward force acting on the wooden block decreases. The total force downward remains the same.
This difference will be compensated by the normal reaction by the tank wall on the wooden block. Thus the block does not moves up and remains at its original position.

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 4

When liquid medicine of density ρ is to put in the eye, it is done with the help of a dropper. As the bulb on the top of the dropper is pressed, a drop forms at the opening of the dropper. We wish to estimate the size of the drop. We first assume that the drop formed at the opening is spherical because that requires a minimum increase in its surface energy. To determine the size, we calculate the net vertical force due to the surface tension T when the radius of the drop is R. When this force becomes smaller than the weight of the drop, the drop gets detached from the dropper.

Q. If the radius of the opening of the dropper is r, the vertical force due to the surface tension on the drop of radius R (assuming r << R) is

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 9

STATEMENT-1 : The stream of water flowing at high speed from a garden hose pipe tends to spread like a fountain when held vertically up, but tends to narrow down when held vertically down.
STATEMENT-2 : In any steady flow of an incompressible fluid, the volume flow rate of the fluid remains constant.

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 9

We know that volume flow rate (V) of an incompressible fluid in steady flow remains constant.

V = a × v

where a = area of cross-section and  v =  velocity

⇒ If v decreases a increases and vice - versa.
When stream of water moves up, its speed (v) decreases and therefore 'a' increases i.e. the water spreads out as a fountain. When stream of water from hose pipe moves down, its speed increases and therefore area of crosssection decreases.
Therefore statement-1 is true and statement-2 is the correct explanation of statement-1.

Also ρ3 < ρ2 otherwise the ball would have sink to the bottom of the jar.
Also ρ3 > ρ1 otherwise the ball would have floated in liquid 1. From the above discussion we conclude that ρ1 < ρ3 < ρ2.

An open glass tube is immersed in mercury in such a way that a length of 8 cm extends above the mercury level. The open end of the tube is then closed and sealed and the tube is raised vertically up by additional 46 cm. What will be length of the air column above mercury in the tube now? (Atmospheric pressure = 76 cm of Hg) 

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Mechanical Properties of Solids and Fluids - Question 30

Length of the air column above mercury in the tube is, P + x = P0

⇒ P = (76 – x)
⇒ 8 × A × 76 = (76 – x) × A × (54 – x)
∴ x = 38

Thus, length of air column = 54 – 38 = 16 cm.
