This set of Mechanical Operations Question Bank focuses on “Advantages and Disadvantages of Filter Press”.

1. _______ is a device where mechanical energy in the form of shaft work.
a) Turbomachine
b) Sonic boom
c) Compressor
d) Motor

Explanation: A turbomachine is a device where mechanical energy in the form of shaft work, is transferred either to or from a continuously flowing fluid by the dynamic action of rotating blade rows.

2. _____ is a device which transmits power by converting it into thrust for propulsion.
a) Impellor
b) Propeller
c) Rotor
d) Shaft

Explanation: A propeller is a device which transmits power by converting it into thrust for propulsion of a vehicle though a fluid by rotating two or more twisted blades about a central shaft.

3. _____ of a propeller act as rotating wings and produce force.
b) Wings
c) Fins
d) Ring assembly

Explanation: The blades of a propeller act as rotating wings and produce force through application of Newton’s third law, generating a difference in pressure.

4. What does the below equation represent?
T= (m ∆V) ̇
a) Continuity equation
b) Thrust generated
c) Power required
d) Pressure

Explanation: The following equation represents the thrust generated for a propeller, where m is the mass flow rate in kg/s and T is thrust in Newton’s.

5. What does the below equation following represent?
P=TV1

a) Continuity equation
b) Thrust generated
c) Power required
d) Pressure

Explanation: The following equation represents the power required for a propeller, where P is the power in watts and V is the velocity in m/s.

6. _______ a propulsion arrangement, where by a propeller is mounted within a cylindrical shroud.
a) Boiler
b) Exhauster
c) Impellor
d) Ducted fan

Explanation: A ducted fan is a propulsion arrangement, whereby a propeller is mounted within a cylindrical shroud or duct.

7. The ______ speed of an unshrouded propeller is limited since
a) Operating
c) Critical
d) Final

Explanation: The operating speed of an unshrouded propeller is limited since tip speeds approach the sound barrier at lower speeds than an equivalent ducted propeller.

8. ______ are suitable for low specific speed, high pressure ratio per stage.
a) Centrifugal compressor
b) Axial compressor
c) Axial pump

Explanation: Centrifugal compressors are suitable for low specific speed, high pressure ratio per stage and low mass flow rate applications.

9. Centrifugal compressor may have typical pressure ratio of about _______
a) 2:5
b) 5:1
c) 4:1
d) 7:5

Explanation: Single stage centrifugal compressor may have typical pressure ratio of about 4:1, some test compressors are designed for pressure ratio up to 8:1.

10. For a radial turbine, high pressure gas passes through the volute increasing the ___
a) Potential energy
b) Kinetic energy
c) Power energy
d) Exhaust energy

Explanation: High pressure gas passes through the volute, increasing its kinetic energy, the high velocity gas transfers its energy to the impeller shaft by flowing radially inward through the impeller.
