Fluid Mechanics & Solids handling Mcqs

This set of Chemical Engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “ Fluid Mechanics & Solid handling”. These Mcqs are chosen from a collection of most authoritative and best reference books on Chemical Fluid Mechanics & Solids handling. Our aim is to prepare an individual for competitive exams like NTS, GAT, ECAT, University and College entrance exams, Jobs and interviews. One should practice our MCQS to assimilate Fluid Mechanics & Solids handling comprehensively.

Is practically imcompressible

Deforms continuously when subjected to a shear stress no matter how small that shear stress may be

Cannot be subjected to shear stress

Newtons law of viscosity relates

Pressure velocity and viscosity

Shear stress and rate of angular deformation in a fluid

Temperature viscosity and velocity

Pressure temperature viscosity and rate of angular deformation in a fluid.

Falling drops of rain acquire spherical shape on account of




Surface tension

A perfect gas

Is incompressible

Has zero viscosity

Cannot develop shear stresses

Has constant specific heats and satisfies PV = nRT.

The bulk modulus of elasticity for a liquid

Is independent of temperature

Increases with the pressure

Has the dimensions of volume

Is independent of pressure.

Viscosity has the dimensions




F-1L2T where dimensions M L and T are used for force length and time.

Newtons law of viscosity states that for a given rate of angular deformation of fluid.

The shear stress is directly proportional to the viscosity

The shear stress is inversely proportional to the viscosity
