# Mechanical Operations MCQ’s – Properties of Solid

1 - Question

Each dimensional formula is in which form?
a) [MLT]
b) [MDT]
c) [SDT]
d) [SVT]

Explanation: Every dimensionless formula is represented as the function of the [MLT], where M is the mass, L is the length and T is the time.

2 - Question

The exponents of the formula can be _____
a) Only positive integers
b) Any Value
c) Only Fractions
d) Only Negative

Explanation: All the exponents can be (α, β, ¥) integers either positive or negative and can also either be fractions or zero.

3 - Question

Flow rate can be expressed in dimensional formula as ____
a) MӨ-1
b) MLT-1
c) M-1L
d) TL-2

Explanation: The flow rate can be expressed as Kg/s i.e. [Q] and hence [Q] = M/Ө = MӨ-1.

4 - Question

On which of the listed, Reynold Number of flow depends upon?
a) Capacity, Mass and Diameter
b) Diameter, Length and Capacity
c) Diameter, Velocity and Viscosity
d) Velocity, Capacity and Pressure

Explanation: The Reynolds number can be expressed as [DVP/U], where D is diameter, V is the velocity and P is taken as to be density and U is the viscosity.

5 - Question

Pressure drop can be dimensionally written as ____
a) [D/Ө-1]
b) [F/L2]
c) [MӨ-1]
d) [MLӨ-1]

Explanation: The pressure drop can be written as kg/m2 as it is also same as force thus dimensionally [F/L2], where F is the force and L is the length.

6 - Question

For Rayleigh’s Criteria, Minimum number of unrestricted components are ___
a) (n-r-3)
b) (n-r-2)
c) (n-r-1)
d) (n-r)

Explanation: The number unrestricted components for Rayleigh’s Criteria is (n-r-2), where n = number of quantities and r is the primary dimensions.

7 - Question

The dimensions of density is?
a) [M/L]
b) [T/L2]
c) [M/L3]
d) [L/Ө]

Explanation: The units of density is kg/m3, hence the dimensions can written as M for mass and L raised to exponent (3), Thus [M/L3/sup>

8 - Question

The working rule for the Buckingham π method is?
a) p=m-n
b) p=n-m
c) p=m-1
d) p=n-1

Explanation: Langhoar has proved that for a number of dimensionless groups ‘P’ constituting a complete set for ‘n’ quantities is given by p=n-m.

9 - Question

The ‘P’ dimensionless groups are related as ____
a) Φ (π1, π2, π3, π4…) = 0
b) α (π1, π2, π3, π4…) = 0
c) β (π1, π2, π3, π4…) = 0
d) µ (π1, π2, π3, π4…) = 0

Explanation: The ‘P’ dimensionless group are related to π1, π2, π3, π4… by the general formula as suggested by Buckingham.

10 - Question

What is the maximum value of m?
a) 4
b) 6
c) 7
d) 5
