Explain the principle involved in measuring pressure and pressure difference using manometer. With the help of a neat sketch, define metacentre and metacentric height. When will streamlines, streaklines and pathlines coincide? Write down the expression for depth of centre of pressure for a vertically immersed plane and surface inclined at angle ‘  ‘ with horizontal. What are the limitations of Bernoulli’s equation? What do you mean by equivalent pipe? Explain, why the casing of a reaction turbine is spiral shape with uniform change in area? What are the function of guide blades in a reaction turbine? Write the function of air vessel used in reciprocating pump. (2 x 10) A glass tube of 8 mm internal diameter is immersed in a liquid at 20 0 C. The specific weight of the liquid is 20601N/m3. The contact angle is 600 and Surface tension is 0.1 N/m. Calculate the capillary rise and also the radius of curvature of the meniscus. A rectangular plate of 0.80 m×0.80 m dimensions weighing 500 N slides down an inclined plane making 300angle with horizontal, at a velocity of 2 m/s. If the 2 mm gap between the plate and inclined surface is filled with lubricating oil, find its viscosity. (6) A circular plate of diameter 2 m is submerged in water vertically such that its top surface is 1 m below the free surface of the water. Determine the total pressure force on the plate and the position of the centre of pressure. A ship of weight 32000KN is floating in sea water. The centre of buoyancy is 1.6 m below its centre of gravity. The moment of inertia of the ship area at the water level is 8320 m4. Find the metacentric height. Take specific weight of sea water is 10.1 KN/m3. (5) (4) (5) Q4 a) b) Derive Euler’s equations of motion for a streamline.
