(a) 4

(b) 5

(c) 16

(d) 20

(a) 4

(b) 2

(c) 0.5

(d) 0.25

(b) 2.5 (D-d)

(c) 2.7 (D-d)

(d) 2.25 (D-d)

Q6. A pitot tube is used to measure the velocity of water in a pipe. The stagnation pressure head is 6 m and static pressure head is 5m. Calculate the velocity of flow assuming the coefficient of tube equal to 0.98

(a) 2.34 m/sec

(b) 3.34 m/sec

(c) 4.34 m/sec

(d) 5.34 m/sec

SOLUTION

S1. Ans.(b)

Sol. Maximum flow = (free speed × Jam density)/4

=(70×80)/4

= 1400 veh/hour.

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol. Given,

Minimum design speed V_min = 100 kmph

e_max = 0.07, f = 0.15 (Normally)

Absolute minimum radius (R_Absolute)→

R_Absolute=V^2/127(e+f)

=(100)^2/127(0.07+0.15)

= 357.9 m ≃ 360 m

S3. Ans. (a)

Sol.

Q = 100 m³/sec.

Froude No. (fr) = 0.8

Depth of flow (y) = ?

Fr = v/√gy = Q/(A√gy) = 100/(5×y√(g×y))

0.8 = 100/(5 × y √(g×y) )

0.8 × 5 × y × √(9.81×y) = 100

y = 3.99m ≈ 4.0 m

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. Pipe (1) Pipe (2)

Diameter = d Diameter = d

Length = L Length = L

Friction factor = 4f Friction factor = f

→ If two pipe connected Parallel than head loss at both is equal

hf₁ = hf₂

(8Q_1^2)/π²g (F₁L₁)/〖D_1〗^5 = (8Q₂²)/π²g (f_2 L₂)/(D₂^5 )

(Q_1^2×4f×L)/d^5 = (Q_2^2×f×L)/d^5

(Q_1^2)/(Q_2^2 ) = 1/4

(Q₁)/(Q₂) = 1/2=0.5

S5. Ans. (b)

Sol. Length of Convergent Cone of venturimeter

2.5 (D – d)

Length of Divergent cone of venturimeter

7.5 (D – d)

S6. Ans. (c)

Sol. V = Cv√2gh

h = (Pstagnation )/ρg – (Pstatic )/ρg

h = 6 – 5

h = 1 m

V = 0.98 × √(2×9.81×1)

V = 4.34 m/sec
