A steel rail of length 5 m and area of cross section 40cm2 is prevented from expanding along its length while the temperature rises by 10oC. If coefficient of linear expansion and Young’s modulus of steel are 1.2×10−5 K−1 and 2×1011 Nm−2 respectively, the force developed in the rail is approximately :
A
2 $\times$ 107 N
B
1 $\times$ 105 N
C
2 $\times$ 109 N
D
3 $\times$ 10$-$5 N

## Explanation

Young's modulus (Y) = ${{{F \over A}} \over {{{\Delta L} \over L}}}$

as  ${{{\Delta L} \over L}}$ = $\alpha$ $\Delta $$\theta \therefore\,\,\, Y = {{F \over {A\alpha \Delta \theta }}} \Rightarrow$$\,\,\,$ F = YA$\alpha $$\Delta$$\theta$

= 2 $\times$ 1011 $\times$ 40$\times$10$-$4 $\times$ 1.2 $\times$ 10$-$5 $\times$ 10

= 9.6 $\times$ 104 N

$\simeq$ 1 $\times$ 105 N

Two tubes of radii r1 and r2, and lengths l1 and l2 , respectively, are connected in series and a liquid flows through each of them in stream line conditions. P1 and P2 are pressure differences across the two tubes.

If P2 is 4P1 and l2 is ${{{1_1}} \over 4}$, then the radius r2 will be equal to :
A
r1
B
2r1
C
4r1
D
${{{r_1}} \over 2}$

## Explanation

We know,

Rate of flow of liquid through narrow tube,

${{dv} \over {dt}}$ = ${{\pi {{\Pr }^4}} \over {8\eta l}}$

Both tubes are connected in series so rate of flow of liquid is same.

$\therefore\,\,\,$ ${{\pi {P_1}r_1^4} \over {8\eta {l_1}}}$ = ${{\pi {P_2}r_2^4} \over {8\eta {l_2}}}$

$\Rightarrow $$\,\,\, {{{P_1}{r_1}^4} \over {{l_1}}} = {{{P_2}{r_2}^4} \over {{l_2}}} Given, P2 = 4P1 and {l_2} = {{{l_1}} \over 4} \Rightarrow$$\,\,\,$ ${{{P_1}{r_1}^4} \over {{l_1}}}$ = ${{4{P_1}{r_2}^4} \over {{{{l_1}} \over 4}}}$

$\Rightarrow $$\,\,\, {r_2}^4 = {{{r_1}^4} \over {16}} \Rightarrow$$\,\,\,$ r2 = ${{{r_1}} \over 2}$

A solid sphere of radius r made of a soft material of bulk modulus K is surrounded by a liquid in a cylindrical container. A massless piston of area a floats on the surface of the liquid, covering entire cross section of cylindrical container. When a mass m is placed on the surface of the piston to compress the liquid, the fractional decrement in the radius of the sphere, $\left( {{dr \over r}} \right)$ is:
A
${{mg} \over {Ka}}$
B
${{Ka} \over {mg}}$
C
${{Ka} \over {3mg}}$
D
${{mg} \over {3Ka}}$

## Explanation Because of m mass the extra pressure created is,

$\Delta$P = ${{mg} \over a}$

And Bulk modulus, $\beta$ = ${{\Delta P} \over {{{\Delta V} \over V}}}$

Given $\beta$ = K

$\therefore\,\,\,$ K = ${{{{mg} \over a}} \over {{{\Delta V} \over V}}}$

We know volume of sphere,

V = ${4 \over 3}\pi {r^3}$

$\therefore\,\,\,$ ${{dV} \over V}$ = 3 ${{dr} \over r}$

$\therefore\,\,\,$ K = ${{{{mg} \over a}} \over {3{{dr} \over r}}}$

$\Rightarrow$$\,\,\,$ ${{dr} \over r}$ = ${{mg} \over {3Ka}}$

When an air bubble of radius r rises from the bottom to the surface of a lake its radius becomes ${{5r} \over 4}.$ Taking the atmospheric pressure to be equal to 10 m height of water column, the depth of the lake would approximately be (ignore the surface tension and the effect of temperature) :
A
11.2 m
B
8.7 m
C
9.5 m
D
10.5 m
