1.a. An ornament weighing 36 $\mathrm{gm}$ in air weighs only 34 $\mathrm{gm}$ in water. Assuming that some copper is mixed with gold to prepare the ornament. Find the amount of copper in it. Specific gravity of gold is 19.3 and that of copper is 8.9 .

1.b. Water is flowing from a hose attached to water main at 400 $\mathrm{kPa}$ (gauge). A child places a thumb to cover most of the hose outlet, causing a thin jet of high speed water to emerge. If the hose is held vertical upward, what is maximum height that jet could achieve. Assume flow is steady, incompressible and laminar.

2.b. Air at an absolute pressure 60.0 $\mathrm{kPa}$ and $27^{0} \mathrm{C}$ enters a passage at 486 $\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}$ . The cross-sectional area at the entrance is 0.02 $\mathrm{m}^{2} .$ At section $2,$ further downstream, the pressure is 78.8 $\mathrm{kPa}$ (abs). Assuming isentropic flow, calculate the Mach number at section 2 . Also identify the type of nozzle.

3.b. In a parallel two dimensional flow in the positive x - direction, the velocity varies linearly from zero at $y=0$ to 32 $\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}$ at $y=1 \mathrm{m}$ in perpendicular direction. Determine the expression for stream function $(\psi)$ and plot streamline at interval of $d \psi=3 \mathrm{m}^{2} / \mathrm{s}$ Is the flow is irrotational. Consider unit width of flow.

4.a. A pipe 0.6 $\mathrm{m}$ in diameter takes off water from the reservoir 150 $\mathrm{m}$ high above the datum. The pipe is 5000 $\mathrm{m}$ long and is laid completely at the datum level. For the last $1200 \mathrm{m},$ water is drawn by service pipe at uniform rate of 0.1 $\mathrm{m}^{3} / \mathrm{sec}$ per 300 $\mathrm{m} .$ Find the head lost in the last 1200 $\mathrm{m}$ length of pipe. Take friction factor as 0.04 and velocity is zero at dead end.

5. Using Reynold's Transport Theorem derive the mass flow rate equation and momentum equation to solve the following

Water at a pressure of 72 $\mathrm{kN} / \mathrm{m}^{2}$ flows through a horizontal pipe of diameter 360 $\mathrm{mm}$ at the rate of 300 $\mathrm{lps}$ . The direction of water is changed through $120^{\circ}$ by a vertical bend whose exit diameter is 240 $\mathrm{mm}$ . The volume of the bend is 0.14 $\mathrm{m}^{3} .$ The exit of the bend is 2.4 $\mathrm{m}$ above the inlet. Find the magnitude and direction of the resultant force on the bend due to water. Neglect friction and minor losses.
