(a) 2
(a) 4
(c) 8
(d) 2√2


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Coefficient of discharge is defined as the ratio of the actual discharge from an orifice to the theoretical discharge from the orifice. It is denoted by C_d.

C_d=(Actual discharge)/(Theoritical discharge)
=(Actual velocity)/(Theoritical velocity)×(Actual area)/(Theoritical Area)
▭(C_d=C_v×C_C )
C_V= coefficient of velocity
C_C= coefficient of contraction.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. For most economical triangular channel section, the side slope m = tanθ = tan 45
Given, Q = 1 m³/sec.
Now, critical depth for triangular channel
Section –
y_c=((2Q^2)/(gm^2 ))^(1\/5)
=[(2×(1)^2)/(9.8×(1)^2 )]^(1\/5)
▭(y_c=(1/4.9)^(1\/5) metre)

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Meta centric height is the vertical distance between centroid of the submerged body and the metacenter of the submerged body.
For ship (time period of oscillation under stability)
▭(T=2π√(k^2/g(GM) ))
GM = metacentric height
k = radius of gyration
∵ T α 1/√GM α 1/(Stability )
If GM is large, then time period of oscillation is small hence oscillation is more comfort of passenger is decreased.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. When two pumps are operated in series then discharge remains same and head produced is doubled while if they operated in parallel then discharge is doubled and head remains the same.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, conjugate depths y_1=0.4 m.
y_2=1.4 m.
E_L= ?
E_L=(y_2-y_1 )^3/(4y_1 y_2 )

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given,
d_1=30 cm
V_1=100 m\/sec⁡
d_2=15 cm
V_2= ?
By continuity equation
A_1 V_1=A_2 V_2
π/4 (d_1 )^2×100=π/4 (d_2 )^2×V_2
▭(V_2=400 m\/sec )

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. The density of water is 1000 kg/m³ at 4°C or 39°F.

S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. Unit of kinematic viscosity is m^2/sec or (cm^2)/sec
▭(1 stokes =1 (cm^2)/sec.=10^(-4) m^2/sec.)

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. → The pressure inside in a hollow soap bubble in the air is 8σ/d.
→ The pressure inside in water droplet is 4σ/d.
→ The pressure inside in liquid jet is 2σ/d.
Where, d = diameter
σ= Surface tension

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Given, stream function Ψ = (x²-y²)
Magnitude of absolute velocity at point (1, 1) = ?
V_x= -2y
▭(〖V_x〗_((1,1) )= -2)
V_y= -2x
▭(〖V_y〗_1,1= -2)
V=√((V_x )^2+(V_y )^2 )
=√((-2)^2+(-2)^2 )
