Part B

11. (a) A gas expands in a cylinder according to the relation PV1.3 = constant from an initial state of 0.3 m3 and 1000 kPa to a final state of 101 kPa. Calculate the work done on the piston by the gas pressure.
Or
(b) Explain the following :-
(i) Boyle’s law.
(ii) Charle’s law.
(iii) First law of thermodynamics.
(iv) Universal gas constant.
(v) Enthalpy.
(vi) Internal energy.
12. (a) Compare the working of SI and CI engines.
Or
(b) The compression ratio of an Otto cycle is 8.8. The minimum pressure and temperature is 0.95 bar and 250 C. The amount of heat added to the air per cycle is 1,400 kJ/kg. On the basis of air-standard cycle, determine (i) Maximum temperature of the cycle ; (ii) The air-standard efficiency. Take Cv = 0.718, ? = 1.4.

13. (a) What is meant by slip in belt drives? Derive an expression for velocity ratio of belt drive taking into consideration the effect of slip.
Or
(b) The velocity ratio of 2 spur gears in mesh is 0.4 and the centre distance is 75 mm. For a module of 1.2 mm, find the number of teeth at the gears. If the pinion speed is 800 r.p.m. what is the speed of the gear wheel?

14. (a) Discuss the methods used for harnessing solar energy.
Or
(b) Differentiate between impulse and reaction turbines used in hydroelectric power plants.

15. (a) Discuss about the workholding devices used in lathes.
Or
(b) Discuss about the types of patterns used in making moulds for casting.
