(b) 7.5m
(c) 10m
(d) 12.5m

(a) 94.80 m
(b) 99.71 m
(c) 100.29 m
(d) 105.20 m

(a) 14.4 m³/m²/day
(b) 28.8 m³/m²/day
(c) 9.6 m³/m²/day

Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
ρ_w=10^3 kg\/m^3
g = 9.81 m/sec²
S_l=0.8
ρ_l=0.8 × 10³ kg/m³
P = 1 kg/cm²= 10^4 kg\/m^2
h= ?
We know,
P = ρ_l gh
10^4= 0.8 × 10³ × 9.81 × h
▭(h=12.5m)

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. H.I = RL + BS
= 100 + 2.445
= 102.445m.
RL at point B = HI – (FS)
= 102.445 – (–2.745)
= 105.19 ≈ 105.20m.

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given,
Flow rate (Q) = 0.1 m³/s.
Length (L) = 30m.
Depth (D) = 3m.
Surface overflow rate (SOR) = ?
SOR = ▭((Flow rate (Q))/(Surface Area (B.L) ))
= (0.1×24×3600)/(10×30)
▭(SOR=28.8 m^3 \/m^2 \/day)

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. As per IS 883:1994, The deflection in case of battens, purlins, beam joist and other flexural members supporting brittle material shall not be greater than span/360.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Given,
Q = 10 cc/sec.
i = 10
A = 100 cm²
K = ?
We know,
Q = KiA
10 = K × 10 × 100
K=1/100 cm\/sec⁡
▭(K=1×10^(-4) m\/sec.)
