Time:-3Hours
Max. Marks: - 75
SECTION-A
Attempt any five Questions.
(5*5)
1. Define atomic mass and molecular mass.
2. Derive the combustion equation of gas ears fuel.
3. A producer gas used as a fuel has the following volumetric composition H2 28%,
CO12%, CH4 2%, co2 16% and N2 42 %. Find the volume of air required for
complete contusion of 1m(3) this gas. Air contains 21% by volume of oxygen.
4. Derive the general expression for change of entropy of a perfect gas.
5. 0.5 kg of a perfect gas is heated from 100’c to 300˚c at a constant pressure of 2.8
bars. It is then cooled to 100˚c at constant volume. Find the overall change in
entropy take cp=1KJ/KG k and cu=0.72 kj/kg k.
6. 1 kg of air occupier 0.084 m&sup3; at 12.5 bar and 537˚c. it is expanded at a constant
temperature to a final volume of 0.336m&sup3;. Calculate.
7. Explain the working of single stage reciprocating system.
SECTION-B
Attempt any two Questions.
(10*2)
8. Explain in brief about magneto ignition system.
9. Two boilers discharge equal amounts of steam in to the same main. The steam
from one is at 18 bars and 380˚c, and from the other at 18 bars and 0.95 qualities.
Determine the equilibrium conditions, after mixing 2, the loss of entropy by the
high temperature steam, 3. The gain in entropy by the low temperature steam,
and 4. Net increase or decrease of entropy.
10. What is super heater? Explain in brief.
SECTION-C
Attempt any two Questions.
(15*2)
11. A 30m high chimney is used to discharge hot gasses at 297˚c to the atmosphere
which is at 27˚c find the mass of air actually used per kg of fuel, if the draught
produced is 15mm of water. If the cool burnt in the combustion chamber
contains 80% carbon, 6%moisture and remaining ash, determine the percentage
of excess air supplied.
12. A steam turbine receives super heated steam at a pressure of 17 bars and having
a degree of superheat of 110˚c. The exhaust pressure is 0.07 bar and the
expansion of steam takes place is entropic ally. Calculate 1. The heat supplied 2.
The rejected, 3.net work done and 4, the thermal efficiency.
13. Determine the cylinder dimensions of a double acting , 11 kw indicated power,
air compressor which compressor air from 1 bar to 7 bar according to the law pu
(1.4)= constant. The average piston speed is 150m/s. assume stroke to diameter
ratio of 1.5 and neglect clearance.
