**Solutions**

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. In slider crank mechanism, secondary forces fluctuate with double the rotating frequency.

i.e. V=rw[sinθ+(sin2θ)/2n]

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Venturimeter works on the Bernoulli’s principle.

S3. Ans.(c)

Sol. Work is a path dependent function and area under curve in a PV diagram represents the work done in a process.

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. Set-over or offset required on tail stock for taper turning=taper X length of workpiece

Set over or offset length= 1/50 X 200=4 mm

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol. Let, perpendicular and base of the right-angle triangle are a and b.

Then,a+b=14.

a^2+b^2=10^2.

(a+b)^2=14^2.

a^2+b^2+2ab=196.

2ab=96.

ab/2=24 (area of triangle)

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Buoyant force for a floating body passes through centroid of the displaced volume.

S7. Ans.(b)

Sol. H7g6 defines the clearance fit.

S8. Ans.(b)

Sol. Shear stress is directly proportional to shear strain for a Newtonian fluid; hence the curve is a straight line.

S9. Ans (c)

Sol. Given LH = 0.4 SH

Now, SHF = SH/(SH+LH)=1/1.4=0.71

S10. Ans.(b)

Sol. According to Fourier law of conduction, heat flow per unit time between two faces of the body is directly proportional to area of the body.

If A↑ then Q↑.
