S1. Ans. (b)
Sol. The gas turbine which is used in an aircraft is open cycle turbine.
In this cycle the gas is released from the turbine to the surroundings
S2. Ans. (b)
The type of compressor which is used in vapour compression refrigeration system for more than 100 tonnes capacity is Centrifugal compressor and the type of compressor which is used in vapour compression refrigeration system for less than 100 tonnes capacity is reciprocating compressor
S3. Ans. (a)
Mach Number Type of Flow
Mach No. < 0.8 Sub-sonic
0.8 < Mach No. < 1.3 Trans-sonic
Mach No. = 1 Sonic
1.3 < Mach No. < 5 Super-sonic
Mach No. > 5 Hypersonic
S4. Ans (d)
Sol. Critical activities are those activities whose float is zero and has longest path.
Sol. ς=c/(2mω_n )<1
This condition is known as under-damping, as under damping system does simple harmonic motion.
In underdamped system, amplitude of vibration decreases slowly in exponential manner.
Displacement at any instant of time for under damped system is given by ▭(x=Ae^(- ςω_n t) (sin( ςω_n t)+ϕ) )
Sol. from lami’s theorem
1/sin150 = F/sin〖60°〗
F = sin〖60°〗/sin〖150°〗
F = √3 N
