Surface tension is due to
The Mercury is known as non-wetting liquid because it does not wet the surface. The Mercury posses this property due to
Correct Answer :- a
Explanation : Capillarity is the property of both cohesion and adhesion. But surface tension is due to cohesion only it does not involve adhesion. As cohesive force is higher than adhesion in mercury it does not wet the glass.

Multi -stage centrifugal pumps are used to
Correct Answer :- b
Explanation : Within a multistage centrifugal pump, each impeller acts like a single-stage pump within a chain of pumps. As the liquid is propelled from one impeller to the next within the pump’s housing, the pressure of the liquid continuously increases as it passes through until it exits the pump.
By relying on multiple impellers to distribute the pressure-building load of the pump, multistage centrifugal pumps can generate greater power and pressure with smaller motors, using less energy.
The biggest advantage of centrifugal pumps is their aforementioned simplicity. They don't require any valves, or many moving parts. This makes them easy to produce with many different materials. It also allows them to move at high speeds with minimal maintenance.
Discharge of a centrifugal pump is

A localised compressive stress at the area of contact between two members is known as
The bending moment on a section is maximum where shear force is
Correct Answer :- c
Explanation : Both zero and changes sign is the correct answer. Because when sf changes sign from max to min or vice versa, it will come to a point when sf will be zero.
So according to the given options "changes sign" is the correct answer.

A thin spherical shell of internal diameter d is subjected to an internal pressure p. If st is the tensile stress for the shell material, then thickness of shell is equal to
Correct Answer :- d
Explanation : In case of thin spherical shell hoop and longitudinal stresses are same as here length and dia are not two separate things. Both are equal. That's why when we equal resisting stress to the stress due to internal pressure same value is obtained for hoop and longitudinal.
