    The fundamental subjects of mechanical engineering usually include the following except?

    • A.

      Mathematics

    • B.

      Instrumentation and Measurement

    • C.

      Strength of Materials

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Mathematics
    Explanation
    The question asks for a subject that is not included in the fundamental subjects of mechanical engineering. The subjects listed are Mathematics, Instrumentation and Measurement, and Strength of Materials. The correct answer is Mathematics, as it is a fundamental subject that is typically included in the curriculum of mechanical engineering. Therefore, the other options, Instrumentation and Measurement and Strength of Materials, are not the correct answer.

  • 6. 

    The study of non-moving bodies under known loads, how forces affect static bodies is called?

    • A.

      Dynamics

    • B.

      Strength of materials

    • C.

      Statics

    • D.

      Kinematics

    Correct Answer
    C. Statics
    Explanation
    Statics is the correct answer because it is the study of non-moving bodies under known loads and how forces affect static (non-moving) bodies. This branch of physics focuses on analyzing the equilibrium of forces acting on objects at rest. It is concerned with the balance of forces and moments on objects, without considering their motion or acceleration.
