Solutions

S1. Ans (c)

Sol. Young’s modulus is defined as the ratio of longitudinal stress and longitudinal strain.

i.e. E=σ/∈

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol.

Lap joint: Rivets undergo single shear

Single cover butt joint: Rivets undergo single shear.

Double cover butt joint: Rivets undergo double shear.

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. Strain energy theory is also known as Haigh’s theory because it is postulated by Haigh.

S4. Ans (b)

Sol. Perpetual motion machine of the second kind is a machine which produces work while exchanging heat from a single heat source. Which violates Kelvin-Planck statement of Second law of thermodynamics.

Q5. Ans. (b)

Sol. for high speed engines, the cam followe should moves with cycloidal motion as there are no abrupt changes in the velocity and the acceleration at any stage of the motion. Thus, it is most ideal cam profile for high speed follower motion.

S6. Ans. (b)

Sol. Thermal diffusivity- Thermal diffusivity is the thermal conductivity divided by density and specific heat capacity at constant pressure. It measures the rate of heat transfer of heat of a material from the hot end to the cold end. It has the SI derived unit of m²/s.
