For the time domain function, f(t) = t 2 ,which ONE of the following is the Laplace transform of ( ) t 0 f t dt ? ? ( ) 4 3 A s ( ) 2 1 B 4s ( ) 3 2 C s ( ) 4 2 D s Answer: (D) Exp. We have ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) t 0 t 2 2 3 4 3 0 F s L f t dt where F s L f t s 2 2 2 L t dt 3 L t s s s ? ? = = ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? = = = ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 3. If f*(x) is the complex conjugate of f(x) = cos(x) + i sin(x), then for real a and b, ( ) ( ) b a f * x f x dx is ALWAYS ? ( ) A positive ( ) B negative ( ) C real ( ) D imaginary Answer: (C) Exp. ( ) ( ) ( ) f x cos x isin x = + ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )( ) ( ) b b a a b b ix ix a a f * x cos x isin x f * x .f x dx cos x isin x cos isin x dx e .e dx 1.dx b a R a, b, R Real for real a & b. - = - = - + = = = - ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 4. If f(x) is a real and continuous function of x, the Taylor series expansion of f(x) about its minima will NEVER have a term containing (A) first derivative (B) second derivative (C) third derivative (D) any higher derivative Answer: (A) ?CH-GATE-2014 PAPER| 5 Exp. For a real valued function y = f(x) Taylor series expansion about â€˜aâ€™ ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 x a f x f a x a f ' a f '' a ..... 2! For min ima at x a, f ' a 0. - = + - + + = = So, Taylor series expansion of f(x) about â€˜aâ€™ will never contain first derivative term. 5. From the following list, identify the properties which are equal in both vapour and liquid phases at equilibrium P. Density Temperature R. Chemical potential S. Enthalpy (A) P and Q only (B) Q and R only (C) R and S only (D) P and S only Answer: (B) Exp. For phase equilibrium ( ) g l g l g l Temperature; T T Pr essure; P P correct Ans is B . Chemical potential; ? = ? = ? ? µ =µ ? 6. In a closed system, the isentropic expansion of an ideal gas with constant specific heats is represented by Answer: (D) Exp. For isentropic expansion, PV cons tan t Taking log on both sides ln P ln V 0 ln P negative ln V ? = +? = =-?= is positive slope of lnP vs ln V is negative. ? ?
