Steady, compressible flow of air takes place through an adiabatic converging-diverging nozzle, as shown in the figure. For a particular value of pressure difference across the nozzle, a stationary normal shock wave forms in the diverging section of the nozzle. If $E$ and $F$ denote the flow conditions just upstream and downstream of the normal shock, respectively, which of the following statement(s) is/are TRUE?

A

Static pressure at $E$ is lower than the static pressure at $F$

B

Density at $E$ is lower than the density at $F$

C

Mach number at $E$ is lower than the Mach number at $F$

D

Specific entropy at $E$ is lower than the specific entropy at $F$

A $$60$$ $$mm$$ $$-$$ diameter water jet strikes a plate containing a hole of $$40mm$$ diameter as shown in the figure. Part of the jet passes through the hole horizontally, and the remaining is deflected vertically. The density of water is $$1000$$ $$kg/{m^3}$$ . If velocities are as indicated in the figure, the magnitude of horizontal force (in $$N$$) required to hold the plate is _______________

The arrangement shown in the figure measures the velocity $$V$$ of a gas of density $$1kg/{m^3}$$ flowing through a pipe. The acceleration due to gravity is $$9.81m/{s^2}.$$ If the manometric fluid is water (density $${1000kg/{m^3}}$$ ) and the velocity $$V$$ is $$20 m/s,$$ the differential head $$h$$ (in $$mm$$) between the two arms of the manometer is ______.

The water jet exiting from a stationary tank through a circular opening of diameter $$300$$ $$mm$$ impinges on a rigid wall as shown in the figure. Neglect all minor losses and assume the water level in the tank to remain constant. The net horizontal force experienced by the wall is ___________ $$kN.$$

Density of water is $$1000\,\,kg/{m^3}.$$

Acceleration due to gravity $$g = 10\,\,m/{s^2}.$$
