Mechanical Operations MCQ’s – Properties of Solid

1 - Question

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

View Answer

Answer: a
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

View Answer

Answer: b
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

View Answer

Answer: a
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

View Answer

Answer: c
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]       

View Answer

Answer: b
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)

View Answer

Answer: b
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]           

View Answer

Answer: c
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

View Answer

Answer: b
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

View Answer

Answer: a
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

View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The maximum value of primary dimension that are (FMLӨT) is 5, these are fixed and hence cannot be changed.
