Fluid Mechanics is a branch of physics, which deals with the motion of fluid and its consequences due to the external force and pressure. It is the study of fluids in static and dynamic conditions. The motion of fluid is governed by the equation of classical mechanics.It’s application in a wide range of fields including mechanical, biomedical and astrophysics.
Question 1: In case of viscosity of fluid, __________ force is predominant in liquid.
a) Adhesive b) Cohesive
c) Intermolecular d) Ionic
Answer: b) Cohesive
Explanation: Due to strong cohesive force between liquid
Question 2: The specific weight of 30dm of diesel of specific gravity 0.6 is (dm stands for decimeter)
a) 11772 b) 11720
c) 5552 d) 5886
Answer: d) 5886
Explanation: Volume of diesel V =
Question 3: For a Non-Newtonian fluid, A is called ___________ in the expression
a) Initial stress b) Viscosity
c) Flow behaviour d) Consistency index
Answer: d) Consistency index
Explanation: A - Consistency index
Question 4: During positive capillary rise (???? < 90°), adhesive force is ______ than cohesive force.
a) greater b) equal
c) smaller d) none of the above
Answer: a) greater
Explanation: Adhesive force is greater than the cohesive force, which results in capillary rise.
