In the siphon in figure below assuming ideal flow, the pressure PB
As PA = PC both have atmospheric pressure and keeping other factors of energy constant, as liquid is flowing from B to C, PB<PC
The flow of fluid through a pipe is laminar when
An oil of kinematic viscosity 0.5 stokes flows through a pipe of 4 cm diameter. The flow is critical at a velocity of about
In the Navier-Stokes equations, the forces considered are
Navier-Stoke's equation represents the conservation of
The Navier-Stokes equations represent the conservation of momentum, while the continuity equation represents the conservation of mass.
For laminar flow between two fixed parallel plates, the flow velocity
Correct Answer :- b
Explanation : Laminar flow, type of fluid (gas or liquid) flow in which the fluid travels smoothly or in regular paths, in contrast to turbulent flow, in which the fluid undergoes irregular fluctuations and mixing. ... The fluid in contact with the horizontal surface is stationary, but all the other layers slide over each other.
The velocity profile is a parabola.
Capillary tube viscometers used for measurement of viscosity are based on
The kinematic viscosity of oil of specific gravity .8 is .0005 .This oil is used for lubrication of shaft of diameter .4 m and rotates at 190 rpm. Calculate the power lost in the bearing for a sleeve length of 90mm. The thickness of the oil film is 1.5mm.
Power lost= torque * angular velocity
= force* radius* angular velocity
= shear stress * area* radius* angular velocity
Shear Stress = viscosity* velocity gradient
Power lost= 0.0005*0.8*1000* 2*3.142*190/60*0.2*3.142*0.23 * 190/60
= 477.65 Watts.
