### Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. Resilience of a bolt may be increased by increasing its length.

S2. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given, Stream function ψ=xy
We know that
∂ψ/∂x= v and ∂ψ/∂y=-u
So, u=-∂ψ/∂y=-x=-1 (putting x=1)
v=∂ψ/∂x=y=2 (Putting y=2)
So, the velocity at (1, 2) is √(u^2+v^2 )=√(〖(-1)〗^2+〖(2)〗^2 )=√5

S3. Ans. (a)
Sol.
The temp. in oxidizing flame is generally 3300℃
The temp. in carburizing flame is generally 3100℃
The temp. in neutral flame is generally 2900℃

S4. Ans. (b)
Sol. The velocity along the tool face = chip velocity
The velocity along the shear plane = shear velocity
The velocity in the direction of cutting = cutting velocity.

S5. Ans(d)
Sol. If the efficiency is more than 50%, then the screw is said to be overhauling. Efficiency of self-locking screws is less than 50%.
S6. Ans. (a)
Sol. Given,
t_1=20°C
t_2=40°C
t_3=45°C
BPF=(t_3-t_2)/(t_3-t_1 )=(45-40)/(45-20)=0.2

So, efficiency of the coil is 1-BPF=1-0.2=0.8
