MODULE – I (Two Marks with Answers)

Prepared by: - Mr. S. Madhankumar, AP/MCT

1. Compare liquids and gases.

Ans: In a liquid, chunks of molecules can move relative to each other, but the volume remains relatively

constant because of the strong cohesive forces between the molecules. As a result, a liquid takes the

shape of the container it is in, and it forms a free surface in a larger container in a gravitational field.

A gas, on the other hand, expands until it encounters the walls of the container and fills the entire

available space.

2. Compare real fluids and ideal fluids.

Ans:

3. Unlike a liquid, a gas does not form a free surface, and it expands to fill the entire available

space. Examine why it is.

Ans: In a liquid, chunks of molecules can move relative to each other, but the volume remains relatively

constant because of the strong cohesive forces between the molecules. As a result, a liquid takes the

shape of the container it is in, and it forms a free surface in a larger container in a gravitational field.

A gas, on the other hand, expands until it encounters the walls of the container and fills the entire

available space.

4. If there is bucket full of oil and bucket full of water and you are asked to lift them, which one of

the two will require more effort given that volume of buckets remains same and why?

Ans: Water Bucket.

Density of water is more that oil. Hence, its weight for same volume of oil will also be higher.

Therefore, more effort will be required.

5. Define density or mass density.

Ans: Density of a fluid is defined as the ratio of the mass of a fluid to its volume.

Density, ρ = mass/volume (Kg/m3)

ρwater = 1000 Kg/m3

6. Define specific weight or weight density.

Ans: Specific weight or weight density of a fluid is defined as the ratio between the weights of a

fluid to its volume.

Specific weight, w = weight/volume (N/m3)

w = ρg

wwater = 9810 N/m3

7. Determine the mass and the weight of the air contained in a room whose dimensions are 6 m ×

6 m × 8 m. Assume the density of the air is 1.16 kg/m3.

Ans:

8. A 3-kg plastic tank that has a volume of 0.2 m3 is filled with liquid water. Assuming the density

of water is 1000 kg/m3, determine the weight of the combined system.

Ans:

9. Define viscosity.

Ans: Viscosity is defined as the property of fluid which offers resistance to the movement of one layer

of fluid over another adjacent layer of the fluid.

10. Define Kinematic viscosity.

Ans: It is defined as the ratio between the dynamic viscosity and density of fluid.

𝜸 = μ/ρ (m2/s)

1 stoke = 10-4 m2/s

11. Define surface tension.

Ans: It defined as the tensile force acting on the surface of a liquid in contact with a gas or on the

surface between two immiscible liquids such that the contact surface behaves like a membrane under

tension.

12. A small-diameter tube is inserted into a liquid whose contact angle is 110°. Will the level of

liquid in the tube rise or drop? Justify.

Ans: The liquid level in the tube will drop since the contact angle is greater than 90°, and cos 110° < 0.

13. Nutrients dissolved in water are carried to upper parts of plants by tiny tubes partly because of

the capillary effect. Determine how high the water solution will rise in a tree in a 0.005-mm-

diameter tube as a result of the capillary effect. Treat the solution as water at 20°C with a

contact angle of 15°. Take the surface tension of water at 20oC is 0.073 N/m.

Ans:

14. The excess pressure inside a bubble is known to be a function of surface tension and radius. By

dimensional reasoning identify how the excess pressure will vary if we double the surface

tension and radius.

Ans:

𝑝𝑑 4𝜎

𝜎 = 8 or 𝑝 = 𝑟

If we double the surface tension and radius, pressure inside a bubble remains the same.

15. Determine the bulk modulus of elasticity of a liquid, if the pressure of the liquid is increased

from 70 N/cm2 to 130 N/cm2. The volume of the liquid decreases by 0.15 percent.

Ans:

Ans: The pressure developed by the collapsing bubbles is so high that the material from the adjoining

boundaries gets eroded and cavities are formed. on them.

17. Mathematically relate,

(i) the absolute pressure, atmospheric pressure and gauge pressure.

(ii) the absolute pressure, atmospheric pressure and vacuum pressure.

Ans:

18. A vacuum gauge connected to a chamber reads 36 kPa at a location where the atmospheric

pressure is 92 kPa. Determine the absolute pressure in the chamber.

Ans:

Pabs=Patm-PVacuum

= 56 kPa

19. What do you understand by Hydrostatic Law?

Ans: It states that rate of increase of pressure in a vertical direction is equal to weight density of the

fluid at that point.

20. Tell Pascal’s law, and give a real-world example of it.

Ans: It states that the pressure or intensity of pressure at a point in a static fluid is equal in all directions.

Applications: Hydraulic press and Hydraulic brakes.

21. List the types of fluid flow.

Ans: Steady and unsteady flow

Uniform and non-uniform flow

Laminar and Turbulent flow

Compressible and incompressible flow

Rotational and irrotational flow

One, two- and three-dimensional flow.

22. Distinguish between laminar and turbulent flow.

Ans: Laminar – The fluid particles move along well-defined paths or stream line and all the stream-

lines are straight and parallel.

Turbulent – The fluid particles move in a zig-zag way.

23. Define steady flow and uniform flow.

Ans: Steady – The fluid characteristics like velocity, pressure, density, etc., at a point do not change

with time.

Uniform – The velocity at any given time does not change with respect to space.

24. Define Rotational and Irrotational flow.

Ans: Rotational flow

Rotational flow is that type of flow in which the fluid particles while flowing along stream lines

and also rotate about their own axis.

Irrotational flow

If the fluid particles are flowing along stream lines and do not rotate about their own axis that

type of flow is called as ir-rotational flow.

head and datum head are constant at any point of the fluid.
