The basic property of a fluid that makes it different from solids

**A. ** it can be compressed

**B. ** it does not expands very little on heating

**C. ** is that it can flow

**D. ** it has a large density

**Answer : ****Option C**

**Explaination / Solution: **

fluids can flow due to unbalanced forces between the atoms of fluids.

The specific gravity of a material is

**A. ** the ratio of its mass to the density of water

**B. ** the ratio of its mass to the mass of water

**C. ** the ratio of its density to the density of water

**D. ** the ratio of its volume to the density of water

**Answer : ****Option C**

**Explaination / Solution: **

The specific gravity of an object is the ratio between the density of an object to a reference liquid. Usually, this reference liquid is water, which has a density of 1 g/mL or 1 g/cm3.

Water has a specific gravity equal to 1. Materials with a specific gravity less than 1 are less dense than water, and will float on the pure liquid; substances with a specific gravity more than 1 are more dense than water, and will sink.

Pressure p at any point in a fluid at rest is

**A. ** the normal force at that point per unit mass

**B. ** the normal force at that point per unit volume

**C. ** the force parallel to area at that point per unit area

**D. ** the normal force at that point per unit area

**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

It is important to note that it is valid only for a fluid at rest. In the case of a moving fluid, pressures in different directions could be different depending upon fluid accelerations in different directions.

According to Pascal’s Law the

**A. ** pressure in a fluid at rest is the same at all points if they are at different heights

**B. ** pressure in a fluid decreases with temperature

**C. ** pressure in a fluid at rest is the same at all points if they are at the same height

**D. ** pressure in a fluid increases with temperature

**Answer : ****Option C**

**Explaination / Solution: **

According to Pascal's Law,

P-P0 = hdg

from above

Change in pressure is directly proportional to depth from the free surface.

At the same horizonatal line all point are at the same depth and have same value of acceleration due to gravity and denity of water as well.

The pressure at a depth of h in a fluid of density at a place where the acceleration due to gravity is g and the pressure at h=0 is is given by

According to Pascal's Law,

Change in Pressure (P-P0) = hg

if h=0 then P-P0 = 0

The units of pressure in SI system is

**A. ** Newton

**B. ** Joule

**C. ** Watt

**D. ** Pascal

**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

The SI unit for pressure is the pascal (Pa), equal to one newton per square metre (N/m2, or kg. m. s−2). This name for the unit was added in 1971; before that, pressure in SI was expressed simply in newtons per square metre

Gauge pressure at a point is

**A. ** pressure at that point + atmospheric pressure

**B. ** (pressure at that point – atmospheric pressure)/2

**C. ** pressure at that point – atmospheric pressure

**D. ** (pressure at that point + atmospheric pressure)/2

**Answer : ****Option C**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Gauge pressure is zero-referenced against ambient air pressure, so it is equal to absolute pressure minus atmospheric pressure. Negative signs are usually omitted

The difference between absolute pressure and atmospheric pressure is what we call gauge pressure (). It can be calculated if we know the absolute and atmospheric pressures using this formula:

According to Pascal’s law for transmission of fluid pressure external pressure applied on any part of a fluid contained in a vessel is ___________________ in all directions

**A. ** transmitted undiminished and equally

**B. ** transmitted and decreased

**C. ** not transmitted

**D. ** transmitted and increased

**Answer : ****Option A**

**Explaination / Solution: **

Pascal's principle is defined as a change in pressure at any point in an enclosed fluid at rest is transmitted undiminished to all points in the fluid.

This principle is stated mathematically as:

is the hydrostatic pressure (given in pascals in the SI system), or the difference in pressure at two points within a fluid column, due to the weight of the fluid.

In a hydraulic lift the force applied on the smaller cylinder of area A1 is F1. If the area of the larger cylinder is A2 the maximum weight that can be lifted is

**A. ** F1A2
**B. ** A1A2F1
**C. ** F1
**D. ** A2A1F1
**Answer : ****Option D**

**Explaination / Solution: **

According to Pascal's Law,

Pressure applied to any point inside the liquid is trnasmiteed equally in all direction so,

Pressure applied on the smaller cylinder is equal to the pressure on the other cylinder,which is given by

So,
