(d) lower discharge pressure

(a) Pressure angle changes
(b) Velocity ratio changes
(c) Pitch circle remain unaffected
(d) Law of gearing does not satisfy

(a) long bolt with increased elasticity
(b) short bolt with high rigidity
(c) bolt with castle nut
(d) bolt with a dished washer
Q9. Which of the following is also the second name of line imperfection?
(a) Miller defect
(b) Frenkel defect
(c) Schottky defect
(d) Edge dislocation
Q10. On which of the following place on a cutting tool, flank wear occurs?
(a) Relief face of the tool

(d) Nose of the tool
S1. Ans (b)
Sol. There are three types of thermodynamic systems:
Open system: Both mass and energy transfer take place
Closed system: Only energy transfer takes place
Isolated system: No mass and energy transfer take place.
S2. Ans (a)
Sol. Given data
Q1=80000 kJ/hr=40000/3600 kJ/s
= 11.11 kW
COP =T1/(T1-T2 )=333/(333-273)=5.55
Also, COP =Q1/W
or,W=11.11/5.55 = 2 kW
S3. Ans (d)
Sol. Vertical component of pressure force on the submerged curved surface is equal to the gravity force of liquid vertically above the curved surface up to the free surface.
S4. Ans (b)
Sol. The clearance volume is the space between piston top of inner surface of the cylinder head. The clearance volume reduces the capacity of the compressor and volume flow rate.
S5. Ans (a)
Sol. By having maximum lateral surface at the root side of the fin, we can get maximum heat dissipation through a fin.
S6. Ans (d)
Sol. Piston of diesel engine are usually cooled by lubricating oil. In addition, the lubricant on the cylinder walls must function as a seal to minimize the amount of gases of combustion that pass the piston rings and enter the crankcase.
S7. Ans (a)
Sol. The common tangent to the base circle changes when the distance between centre of two gears changes. So, the angle between the common tangent to base circle or action line with common tangent to pitch circle changes or pressure angel changes.
S8. Ans (c)
Sol. The castle nut consists of a hexagonal portion with a cylindrical upper part which is slotted in the line with the centre of each face. The split pin passes through two slots in the nut and a hole in the bolt, so that a positive lock is obtained unless the pin shears. It is extensively used in jobs subjected to sudden shocks and considerable vibration such as in automobile industry.
S9. Ans (d)
Sol. Edge dislocation is also known as line defect. Frankel and Schottky defect are both point defects.
S10. Ans (a)
Sol. Flank wear mainly occurs at the side relief face of the cutting tool due to friction between the workpiece surface and cutting tool face.
