### Solutions

S1. Ans. (a)
Sol. By use of air vessel in reciprocating pump, head loss due to friction in suction as well as in delivery pipe is reduced and by this reduction in head a considerable amount of work is saved.
And percentage of work save in case of single acting pump is 84.8 % and 39
2 % in double acting pump when we use air vessel in reciprocating pump.

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Re=ux/ϑ
x=(30000×72×10^(-6))/24=0.09 m=9 cm

S3. Ans. (c)
Sol. A simple pitot tube measure stagnation pressure but a pitot static tube is used to measure dynamic pressure.

S4. Ans. (c)
Sol. Constant pressure lines diverge from left to right on Mollier diagram.
Mollier diagram is drawn between enthalpy (h) on y-axis and entropy (s) on x-axis.
The slope of constant pressure line on h-s curve is absolute temperature.

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. The dynamic load on gears is due to the following factors
(i) In inaccuracies in tooth profile
(ii) Errors in tooth spacing
(iii) Runout of the gear
(iv) Gear mesh stiffness variation as the gear teeth pass through the meshing cycle
(v) Inertia of rotational masses
(vi) Deflection of teeth
(vii) Stiffness of the rotating parts

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. A 20° stub tooth system is generally preferred in spur gears as it results in
1. Stronger teeth.
2. Lesser number of teeth on the pinion.
3. Smaller interference.
