**Q.1. A small uniform tube is benit into a circle of radius r whose plane is vertical. Equal volumes of two fluids whose densities are σ(ρ > s) fill half the circle. Find the angle that the radius passing through the interface makes with the vertical.**

h

_{AB}= r - cos(90 - θ) = r - r sin θh

_{BC}= r - r cos θ

h_{CD}= r sin(90 - θ) = r cos θ

h_{DE}= r sin θWriting pressure equation between points A and E we have

p_{A}+ (r - r sin θ) - ρg(r - r cos θ) ρg - (r cos θ)(σ) g - (r sin θ) σg = P_{E}But p

_{A}= p_{E}

Solving this equation we get

**Q.2. A solid ball of density half that of water falls freely under gravity from a height of 19.6 m and then enters water. Upto what depth will the ball go and how much time will it take to come again to the water surface? Neglect air resistance and viscosity effects in water(Take g = 9.8 m/s ^{2})**

Let ρ be the density of ball and 2r the density of water.

Net retardation inside the water,

(V = volume of ball)

Hence, the ball will go upto the same depth 19.6 m below the water surface.

Further, time taken by the ball to come back to water surface is,

**Q.3. When air of density 1.3 kg/m ^{3} flows across the top of the tube shown in the accompanying figure, water rises in the tube to a height of 1.0 cm. What is the speed of the air?**

**Q.4. A spherical ball of radius 3.0 x 10 ^{-4} m and density 10^{4} kg/m^{3} falls freely under gravity through a distance h before entering a tank of water. If after entering the water the velocity of the ball does not change, find h. Viscosity of water is 9.8 x 10^{-6} N-s/m^{2}.**

Before entering the water the velocity of ball is . If after entering the water this velocity does not change then this value should be equal to the terminal velocity.

Therefore,

**Q.5. The area of cross-section of a large tank is 0.5 m ^{2}. It has an opening near the bottom having area of cross-section 1 cm 2. A load of 20 kg is applied on the water at the top. Find the velocity of the water coming out of the opening at the time when the height of water level is 50 cm above the bottom. (Take g = 10 m/s^{2})**

**Q.6. The U - tube acts as a water siphon. The bend in the tube is 1m above the water surface. The tube outlet is 7m below the water surface. The water issues from the bottom of the siphon as a free jet at atmospheric pressure. Determine the speed of the free jet and the minimum absolute pressure of the water in the bend.****Given atmospheric pressure = 1.01x10 ^{5} N/m^{2}, g = 9.8m/s^{2} and density of water = 10^{3} kg/m^{3} .**

(a) Applying Bernoulli’s equation between points (1) and (2)

Since, area of reservoir >> area of pipe

v_{1}» 0,

also P_{1}= P_{2 }= atmosphere pressure

So,

(b) The minimum pressure in the bend will be at A . Therefore, applying Bernoulli’s equation between (1) and ( A)

Therefore, substituting the values, we have

= 2.27 x 10^{4}N/m^{2}

**Q.7. A tank having a small circular hole contains oil on top of water. It is immersed in a large tank of the same oil. Water flows through the hole. What is the velocity of this flow initially? When the flow stops, what would be the position of the oil-water interface in the tank from the bottom. The specific gravity of oil is 0.5.**

(a) Δp = h(ρ

_{w}- ρ_{0}) g = (10)(1000 - 500)9.8

= 49000 N/m^{2}

Now, Δp = 1/2 ρwv^{2}

(b) The flow will stop when,

(10 + 5)ρ_{0}g = 5ρ_{0}g + hρ_{w}g

10ρ_{0}= hρ_{w}

∴ h = 10 x 500/1000 = 5 m

i.e., flow will stop when the water-oil interface is at a height of 5.0 m.

**Q.8. The pressure gauge shown in figure has a spring for which k = 60N/m and the area of the piston is 0.50cm ^{2}. It right end is connected to a closed container of gas at a gauge pressure of 30kPα. How far will the spring be compressed if the region containing the spring is(a) in vacuum and(b) open to the atmosphere? Atmosphere pressure is 101kPα.**

(a) Force from left hand side = Force from right hand side

∴ kx = ΔpA

= 0.109 m or 10.9 cm

(b)

**Q.9. Water flows through the tube shown in figure. The areas of cross-section of the wide and the narrow portions of the tube are 5 cm ^{2} and 2 cm^{2} respectively. The rate of flow of water through the tube is 500 cm^{3}/s . Find the difference of mercury levels in the U-tube.**

Q = 500 cm

^{3}/sec

Q = A_{1}V_{1}= A_{2}V_{2}

V_{1}= 100 cm/sec V_{1}= 1m/sec

Also

V = 250 cm/sec V^{2}= 2.5m/sec

P_{1}- P_{2}= 1/2 x 1000 x (2.5-1)(2.5 + 1) = 2625 Pα

Now P_{1 }= P_{C}= P_{D}= P_{E}+ ρgh = P_{2}+ ρgh

P_{C}= P_{1}+ ρgh_{1}, P_{E}= P_{2}+ ρgh_{2}, P_{C}- P_{E}= P_{1}- P_{2}+ ρgh

Now P_{1}= P_{C}= P_{D}= P_{E}+ ρgh = P_{2}ρgh ⇒ P_{1 }- P_{2}= ρgh

1/2 ρw(V_{2 }- V_{1})(V_{2}+ V_{1}) = ρ_{Hg}gh

h = 0.0193 m = 1.93 cm

**Q.10. A uniform rod AB,4m long and weighing 12kg, is supported at end A, with a 6 kg lead weight at B . The rod floats as shown in figure with one-half of its length submerged. The buoyant force on the lead mass is negligible as it is of negligible volume. Find the tension in the cord and the total volume of the rod.**

T + U = 60 + W (i)

∑(Moments ) about O = 0

or, U + 4T = 2W (ii)

W = 120N (iii)

Solving these three equations we get T = 20 N and U = 160 N

Now,

∴ v = 32 x 10^{-3}m^{3}

**Q.11. A cubical box is to be constructed with iron sheets 1 mm in thickness, What can be the minimum value of the external edge so that the cube does not sink in water? Density of iron = 8000 kg / m3 and density of water 1000 kg/m ^{3} .**

(mass of iron) g = (mass of displaced liquid) g

⇒ ρ_{Fe}(b^{3}- a^{3})g = ρwb^{3}g

where

∴ α = 2 x 0.956/1-0.956 = 43.45 mm and b = 45.45 mm

**Q.12. A fresh water on a reservoir is 10m deep. A horizontal pipe 4.0cm in diameter passes through the reservoir 6.0m below the water surface as shown in figure. A plug secures the pipe opening.(a) Find the friction between the plug and pipe wall.(b) The plug is removed. What volume of water flows out of the pipe in 1h ? Assume area of reservoir to be too large.**

(a) Force of friction = pressure difference on the sides of the plug ´ area of cross section of the plug (ρgh) A = (10)

^{3}(9.8)(6.0)(π)(2x10^{-2})^{2}= 73.9 N

(b) Assuming the area of the reservoir to be too large,

Velocity of efflux, = constant

∴

**Q.13. Water flows through a horizontal tube as shown in figure. If the difference of heights of water column in the vertical tubes is 2 cm and the areas of cross-section at A and B are ****4 cm ^{2} and 2 cm2 respectively, find the rate of flow of water across any section.**

Equation of continuity

A_{1}V_{1}= A_{2}V_{2}

Bernauli equation:

Also P_{1}- P_{2 }= ρgh

∴ ρgh = 1/2 ρ(V_{2 }- V_{1})(V_{2}+ V_{1})(V

_{2}- V_{1}) (V_{2}+ V_{1}) = 2gh

at

∴ Q = A_{1}V_{1}= 4 x 10^{-4}x 0.364 = 145.6 cm^{3}/sec

**Q.14. Water flows through a horizontal tube of variable cross-section (figure 1). The area of cross-section at A and B are 4 mm ^{2} and 2 mm^{2} respectively. If 1 cc of water enters per second through A , find (a) the speed of water at A , (b) the speed of water at B and (c) the pressure difference P_{A} - P_{B}.**

(a) Equation of continuity A

_{1}V_{1}= A_{2}V_{2}

Given Q = A_{1}V_{1}= 1cm/sec = 1cm^{3}/sec

(b) Since A_{1}V_{1}= A_{2}V_{2 }⇒ V_{2}= 500mm/sec

∴ V_{1 }= 250 mm/sec, V_{2}= 500 mm/sec or V_{1}= 25 cm/sec, V_{2}= 50 cm/sec or V_{1 }= 0.25 m/sec, V_{2 }= 0.5m/sec

(c) According to Bernauli’s equation:

P_{1}- P_{2}= 1000/2(0.75)(0.25) = 93.75 Pα

**Q.15. A solid sphere of mass m = 2kg and density r = 500kg/m ^{3} is held stationary relative to a tank filled with water. The tank is accelerating upward with acceleration 2m/s^{2}. **

(a) Tension in the thread connected between the sphere and the bottom of the tank.

(b) If the thread snaps, calculate the acceleration of sphere with respect to the tank.

(Density of water = 1000 kg/m

(a) Up thrust – Weight - T= mα

∴ T= Up thrust - Weight - mα

= (2/500) (1000)(10+2) - 20 - 4 = 48 - 20 - 4 = 24 N

(b) Downward force T suddenly becomes zero.

Therefore, α = (Up thrust – Weight)/m = 48-20/2 = 14m/s^{2}

∴ Acceleration w.r.t. tank

= 14 - 2 = 12m/s^{2}
