(a) 0.025 MPa
(b) 0.25 MPa
(c) 25 MPa
(d) 250 MPa

Q5. The intensity of pressure developed by surface tension of 0.075 N/m in a droplet of water of 0.075 mm diameter is-
(a) 0.8 N/ cm²
(b) 0.6 N/ cm²
(c) 0.4 N/ cm²
(d) 400 N/ cm²

Q6. Turbidity is the measure of relative clarity of a liquid (water), and one of its units of measurement is
(a) MPN
(b) NTU
(c) Moles
(d) Grams


S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. ▭(Throat Thickness (t)=kS)
k → Throat coefficient
S → size of weld.
→ Minimum size of weld up to 10 mm thick plate equal to 3 mm.
→ Throat coefficient for 60° angle between fusion faces equal to 0.7
So, Throat Thickness (t) = 0.7 × 3
= 2.1 mm.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Color test is not used for building stone
→ There are some tests used for building stone-
1.Smith’s test → It is used to find out presence of soluble matters in stone.
2.Acid test → It is used to investigate that how much atmospheric action can be resisted by stone.
3.Crystalline test → It is used to determine the durability and weathering quality of stone.
4.Specific gravity test → It is used to find the specific gravity of stone.
5.Crushing strength test → It is used to find the Crushing strength of stone.
6.Attrition test → It is used to find out rate of wear of stone.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Vehicle/Carrier/Binder → It is a liquid substance which is used with base. The main function of vehicle is to hold the solid ingredient of paint in suspension. They act as binder in paint. It also helps in spreading of paints evenly.
Ex. Linseed oil, Tung oil, Nut oil etc.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Tensile stress in an axial rod of dimension 20 mm × 20mm = P/A=(10×10^3)/(20×20×10^(-6) )

S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. ΔP = 2σ/R
= (2 ×0.075 × 2 ×10 )/(0.075 × 100)
= 0.4 N/cm²

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. As per GOI, the turbidity of water is measured in NTU (Nephelometric turbid unit). The permissible limit of turbidity in in drinking water is 1-10 NTU.
