# Manufacturing Engineering – Heat Transfer-1

1 - Question

Rate of heat flow in conduction.
a) Is directly proportional to temperature gradient
b) Is inversely proportional to temperature gradient
c) Does not depend on temperature gradient
d) Does not depend on temperature gradient & inversely proportional to temperature gradient
Explanation: In conduction, heat transfer rate per unit area is proportional to a temperature gradient. Fourier’s law of conduction describes it as: q = -kA ∂T∂x, where q = heat transfer rate, ∂T∂x = temperature gradient, k = thermal conductivity and the negative sign indicates heat flows downhill in temperature scale.

5 - Question

Which of the following is also known as transport property?
a) Pressure
b) Thermal conductivity
c) Resistance
d) Electrical conductivity
Explanation: Thermal conductivity of material is also known as transport property. It is an intrinsic property of a material which relates its ability to conduct heat. Heat transfer by conduction involves the transfer of energy within a material without any motion of the material as a whole.

6 - Question

With the use of thermal grease contact resistance will?
a) Increase
b) Decrease
c) Remains constant
d) First increases and then decreases
Explanation: Thermal grease reduces contact resistance. Silicon oil is thermal grease which decreases contact resistance.

7 - Question

Silicon oil applied between two contact surfaces will?
a) Increase contact resistance
b) Decrease contact resistance
c) Increase gap void
d) Does not depend upon contact resistance
Explanation: Silicone oil can act as a highly effective lubricant for sliding microelectromechanical system (MEMS) surfaces, increasing operational lifetime for devices with interacting surfaces, thus degrading electrical contact resistance.

8 - Question

When temperature of mercury liquid increases, its thermal conductivity?
a) Decreases
b) Increase
c) Remains constant
d) First increases and then decreases
Explanation: Thermal conductivity of liquid is inversely proportional to temperature. When temperature of mercury liquid increases, its thermal conductivity decreases.

9 - Question

When molecular weight of mercury liquid increases, its thermal conductivity?
a) Decreases
b) Increase
c) Remains constant
d) First increases and then decreases
Explanation: Molecular weight of liquid is inversely proportional to temperature. Thermal conductivity of liquid is inversely proportional to temperature.
