### A person crosses a 600 m long street in 5 minutes. What is his speed in km per hour?

• A.

3.6

• B.

7.2

• C.

8.4

• D.

10

B. 7.2
Explanation
To find the speed in km per hour, we need to convert the distance from meters to kilometers and the time from minutes to hours. Since there are 1000 meters in 1 kilometer and 60 minutes in 1 hour, the person's speed is calculated as follows: 600 meters / 1000 = 0.6 kilometers and 5 minutes / 60 = 0.0833 hours. Dividing the distance by the time, we get 0.6 km / 0.0833 h = 7.2 km/h. Therefore, the person's speed is 7.2 km per hour.

### 39 persons can repair a road in 12 days, working 5 hours a day. In how many days will 30 persons, working 6 hours a day, complete the work?

• A.

10

• B.

13

• C.

14

• D.

15

B. 13
Explanation
If 39 persons can repair a road in 12 days, working 5 hours a day, it means that the total work required to repair the road is 39 * 12 * 5 = 2340 person-hours.

To find out how many days it will take for 30 persons, working 6 hours a day, to complete the work, we need to calculate the total person-hours they can work.

30 persons working 6 hours a day will give us 30 * 6 = 180 person-hours per day.

Dividing the total work (2340 person-hours) by the person-hours per day (180 person-hours) gives us the number of days required, which is 2340 / 180 = 13 days.

Therefore, the correct answer is 13.

### When a shaft is subjected to a twisting moment, every cross-section of the shaft will be under

• A.

Tensile stress

• B.

Compressive stress

• C.

Shear stress

• D.

Bending stress

C. Shear stress
Explanation
When a shaft is subjected to a twisting moment, it experiences shear stress. This is because the twisting moment causes one section of the shaft to rotate relative to another section, resulting in a shearing force between the two sections. Shear stress is the stress that occurs when forces are applied parallel to each other but in opposite directions, causing the material to deform by sliding or shearing. In the case of a shaft, the shear stress is highest at the outer surface and decreases towards the center.

### Hook's law holds good up to

• A.

Yield point

• B.

Elastic limit

• C.

Plastic limit

• D.

Breaking point

B. Elastic limit
Explanation
Hook's law states that the extension or compression of a spring is directly proportional to the applied force, as long as the elastic limit of the material is not exceeded. The elastic limit is the maximum stress or force that a material can withstand without permanent deformation. Beyond the elastic limit, the material will not return to its original shape when the force is removed. Therefore, Hook's law holds good up to the elastic limit, making it the correct answer.

### The application of third type levers is found in

• A.

Handle of a hand pump

• B.

Hand wheel of a punching press

• C.

Lever of a loaded safety valve

• D.

A pair of tongs

D. A pair of tongs
Explanation
Third type levers are characterized by having the fulcrum at one end, the effort applied at the other end, and the load in between. In the case of a pair of tongs, the fulcrum is the point where the tongs pivot, the effort is applied by the user's hand, and the load is the object being gripped by the tongs. When the user squeezes the tongs, the effort applied at one end of the lever causes the other end to move, allowing the tongs to grip and hold onto objects securely. Therefore, a pair of tongs is an example of the application of third type levers.

### The maximum normal stress theory is used for

• A.

Brittle materials

• B.

Ductile materials

• C.

Plastic materials

• D.

Non-ferrous materials

A. Brittle materials
Explanation
The maximum normal stress theory is used for brittle materials because it assumes that failure occurs when the maximum normal stress in a material reaches its ultimate tensile strength. Brittle materials do not exhibit significant plastic deformation before failure, making this theory appropriate for predicting their failure under tensile or compressive loads. Ductile materials, on the other hand, can undergo extensive plastic deformation before failure, so a different theory, such as the maximum shear stress theory, is used for their analysis.

D. Diesel cycle
Explanation
A cycle consisting of one constant pressure, one constant volume, and two isentropic processes is known as the Diesel cycle. In this cycle, the air is compressed adiabatically and then fuel is injected and combusted at constant pressure, resulting in a high-temperature and high-pressure gas. This gas then expands adiabatically, followed by a constant volume heat rejection process. The Diesel cycle is commonly used in diesel engines, where the high compression ratio allows for efficient combustion of fuel and high power output.

### Falling drops of water become spheres due to the property of

• A.

Surface tension of water

• B.

Compressibility of water

• C.

Capillarity of water

• D.

Viscosity of water

A. Surface tension of water
Explanation
When drops of water fall, they tend to form spherical shapes due to the property of surface tension. Surface tension is the force that acts on the surface of a liquid, causing it to behave like a stretched elastic sheet. This force pulls the water molecules at the surface inward, creating a cohesive force that tries to minimize the surface area. As a result, the water droplets form spherical shapes, which have the minimum surface area for a given volume. This property of surface tension allows water droplets to maintain their shape while falling.

### Cold working of metal increases

• A.

Tensile strength

• B.

Yield strength

• C.

Hardness

• D.

All of these

D. All of these
Explanation
Cold working of metal refers to the process of deforming the metal at room temperature. This process involves techniques such as rolling, bending, or drawing. Cold working leads to the rearrangement of the metal's crystal structure, resulting in increased strength and hardness. The tensile strength, which is the ability of the metal to withstand pulling forces, is enhanced through cold working. Similarly, the yield strength, which is the stress at which permanent deformation occurs, is also increased. Additionally, cold working increases the hardness of the metal, making it more resistant to indentation or scratching. Therefore, all of these properties are improved through cold working.
