## Fluids Exercise 157

### Solution 1

The thrust on the unit surface is known as pressure. The SI unit of pressure is Nm

^{-2}.### Solution 2

Pressure is given by

P = h Xp Xg.

Where h is height of liquid column, p is density of liquid, g is acceleration due to gravity.

Density of mercury is = 1.36 X10

h= height of mercury column which is given = 75 cm = 0.75 m.

So pressure = 0.75 X 1.36 X10

P = h Xp Xg.

Where h is height of liquid column, p is density of liquid, g is acceleration due to gravity.

Density of mercury is = 1.36 X10

^{4}kg/m^{3}.h= height of mercury column which is given = 75 cm = 0.75 m.

So pressure = 0.75 X 1.36 X10

^{4}X9.8 = 9.996X104Nm^{-2}.### Solution 3

Pressure is a scalar physical quantity.

### Solution 4

One pascal is defined as the pressure exerted on a surface of area 1 m

### Solution 6

### Solution 7

Water can't be used in place of mercury in a barometer because of its low density. It would require 10.34 m long tube to measure 1 atmospheric pressure which is not practically possible while mercury having high density (13.6 g/cc) would require only 0.76 m long pipe which is practically possible.

### Solution 8

Pressure is the physical quantity which is measured in bar.

### Solution 9

Thrust is a vector quantity.

### Solution 10

Thrust on a surface is the force acting normally on a surface while pressure on a surface is thrust acting on the unit area of a surface.

### Solution 11

### Solution 12

Lake has greater pressure at the bottom than the surface as pressure increases with depth. So when gas bubble is released at the bottom of the lake it experiences more pressure and is small in size but as it rises upwards the pressure experienced by it decreases. So it grows in size as it moves towards the surface from bottom.

### Solution 13

A dam has broader walls at the bottom than at the top because the pressure exerted by a liquid increases with its depth, and at any point at a particular depth liquid pressure is same in all directions. Now as more pressure is exerted by water on the wall of the dam as depth increases. Hence a thick wall is constructed at the bottom of dam to withstand greater pressure.

### Solution 14

### Solution 15

The pressure at a point in a liquid depends upon on the following three factors:

(i) It depends on the point below the free surface (h).

(ii) It depends on density of liquid (p).

(iii) It depends upon acceleration due to gravity (g) of the place.

### Solution 22

### Solution 23

Manometer is a simple pressure gauge that measures differences in pressure at the two ends of the apparatus.

Manometer is a U shaped tube containing water whose one limb is dipped in vessel and vessel is tightly covered with plastic sheet. U shaped tube has two limbs one towards the vessel and other is opened to atmosphere.

Now if level of water toward atmospheric open limb is more than level of water in limb towards apparatus end then liquid is said to be at higher pressure than atmosphere. And if level of water toward atmospheric open limb is less than level of water in limb towards apparatus end then liquid is said to be at lower pressure than atmospheric pressure.

### Solution 29

Altimeter is a device which is used in an aircraft to measure its altitude.

### Solution 30

Atmospheric pressure decreases with increase in height. our atmosphere comprises of a large number of parallel layers. The pressure on a layer is equal to the thrust or weight of the gaseous column on the unit area of that layer. Hence, as we go up, the weight of the gaseous column decreases, which decrease the pressure of the gaseous column.

### Solution 31

Aneroid means containing no liquid and aneroid barometer is evacuated so it tends to collapse under the pressure of air. The stout spring balances the thrust on the metal box due to normal air pressure and prevents the box from collapsing. As this type of barometer doesn't contain any liquid so it got its name aneroid barometer.

### Solution 32

### Solution 33

Mercury is used in barometer because

(i) It can be obtained in pure form.

(ii) It does not vaporizeat ordinary temperatures.

(iii) Its density is high and hence the length of the mercury column supported by atmospheric pressure is 76 cm which is practically possible.

## Fluids Exercise 173

### Solution 1

All liquid exerts an upward force on the body placed in it. This Phenomenon is called buoyancy.

### Solution 2

The upward force which any liquid exerts upon a body placed in it is called the upthrust. The SI unit of upthrust is N.

### Solution 3

Buoyant force act on a body in upward direction.

### Solution 4

Upthrust is defined as the upward force on the object provided by the liquid because the object has displaced some of the fluid.

### Solution 5

When block of cork is immersed in water buoyant force acts on it in upward direction so to overcome this force we have to apply an equal force in downward direction to keep block of cork inside water.

### Solution 6

Wood has density less than water so volume of water displaced by it is more than the volume of wooden block submerged so force of upthrust is greater than the weight of wood which pushes wooden block on the surface. Hence, a piece of wood when left under water again comes to the surface.

### Solution 7

A body will weigh more in air as weight of body acts in downward direction and there is no force in upward direction while body submerged in water weigh less because an upthrust act on the body in upward direction so the resultant weight of the body decreases.

### Solution 8

Upthrust or buoyant force depends on the following factors:

(i) Volume of body submerged in the liquid.

(ii) Density of the liquid.

(iii) Acceleration due to gravity.

(i) Volume of body submerged in the liquid.

(ii) Density of the liquid.

(iii) Acceleration due to gravity.

### Solution 9

### Solution 10

Weight of the body in air = 300 gf.

Apparent Weight of the completely immersed body in water = 280 gf.

(i) Loss in weight of the body = Weight of body in air - apparent weight of immersed body.

Loss in weight = 300 gf - -280 gf = 20 gf.

(ii) As upthrust on the body = loss in weight

(iii) So uptrust = 20 gf.

Apparent Weight of the completely immersed body in water = 280 gf.

(i) Loss in weight of the body = Weight of body in air - apparent weight of immersed body.

Loss in weight = 300 gf - -280 gf = 20 gf.

(ii) As upthrust on the body = loss in weight

(iii) So uptrust = 20 gf.

### Solution 11

Edge of metal cube = 5 cm.

Density of the metal cube = 9 gcm

Volume of the metal cube = 125 cm

Mass of the metal cube =9 X 10

Weight of the liquid = mass X gravity = 1.125 X10 = 11.25 N.

Density of liquid = 1.2 gcm

Upthrust of the liquid = V X p Xg.

Upthrust = 125X10-6 X1.2 X103 X10 = 1.5 N.

Apparent weight of the body = weight of liquid - upthrust

Apparent weight = 11.25 N - 1.5 N = 9.75 N

Tension in the string is equal to the apparent weight of the body

So, tension in string would be 9.75 N.

Density of the metal cube = 9 gcm

^{-3}= 9 X 10^{3}kgm^{-3}.Volume of the metal cube = 125 cm

^{3}= 125X10^{-6}m^{3}.Mass of the metal cube =9 X 10

^{3}X125X10^{-6}= 1125 X10^{-3}=1.125 kg.Weight of the liquid = mass X gravity = 1.125 X10 = 11.25 N.

Density of liquid = 1.2 gcm

^{-3}= 1.2 X10^{3}kgm^{-3}.Upthrust of the liquid = V X p Xg.

Upthrust = 125X10-6 X1.2 X103 X10 = 1.5 N.

Apparent weight of the body = weight of liquid - upthrust

Apparent weight = 11.25 N - 1.5 N = 9.75 N

Tension in the string is equal to the apparent weight of the body

So, tension in string would be 9.75 N.

### Solution 12

It is easier to lift a heavy stone under water because in water an upthrust acts on the upward direction which reduces the apparent weight of the stone and makes it easy to lift.

### Solution 13

### Solution 14

### Solution 15

## Fluids Exercise 174

### Solution 16

Wood has density less than water so volume of water displaced by it is more than the volume of wooden block submerged so force of upthrust is greater than the weight of wood which makes it float on the water surface. And the apparent weight of the piece of the wood would be zero.

### Solution 17

Density of iron is less than the density of mercury so it will float on the surface of the mercury. Apparent weight of the floating iron ball is zero.

### Solution 18

Iron nail has density less than that of mercury so it will float on the surface of mercury but in the case of water it will sink because the density of iron nail is more than that of water.

### Solution 21

Density of iron is more than the density of water so it sinks down in the water but in case of ship, it is design in such a manner that it encloses large quantity of air in air tight bags and in rooms and corridors which makes the average density of ship less than that of water and ship floats on the surface of the water.

### Solution 22

(Density of floating body / Density of liquid) = fraction submerged.

The Fraction of ice submerged in water remain same as density of ice and water remain same during melting. As ice melts some volume of ice decrease and convert into water and volume of water increase by same amount. So, level of water remains same during melting.

### Solution 21

A atmospheric pressure diving suit is a garment or device designed to protect a diver from the underwater environment. Yes, diving suits create buoyancy.

### Solution 23

A fluid exerts pressure on the bottom due to its weight and on the walls of the container in which it is enclosed by virtue of its ability to flow. This is called fluid pressure.

### Solution 24

A dam has broader walls at the bottom than at the top because the pressure exerted by a liquid increases with its depth, and at any point at a particular depth liquid pressure is same in all directions. Now as more pressure is exerted by water on the wall of the dam as depth increases. Hence a thick wall is constructed at the bottom of dam to withstand greater pressure.

### Solution 25

Pascal's law states that pressure applied to an enclosed liquid, is transmitted equally to every part of the liquid.

Means when pressure is applied at a point in a confined fluid, it is transmitted undiminished and equally in all directions throughout the liquid.

Means when pressure is applied at a point in a confined fluid, it is transmitted undiminished and equally in all directions throughout the liquid.

### Solution 27

Factors which affect the atmospheric pressure as we go up are

(i) Weight of gaseous column.

(ii) Density of gaseous column.

(i) Weight of gaseous column.

(ii) Density of gaseous column.

### Solution 28

Atmospheric pressure decreases with increase in height. Our atmosphere comprises of a large number of parallel layers. The pressure on a layer is equal to the thrust or weight of the gaseous column on the unit area of that layer. Hence, as we go up, the weight of the gaseous column decreases, which decrease the pressure of the gaseous column.

### Solution 29

Barometer is a device used for measuring atmospheric pressure.

Simple barometer has two main defects

(i) It is not suitable for making accurate measurement of atmospheric pressure as any change in the level of mercury in the tube changes the level of the free surface of mercury is trough and fixed scale cannot be used with it.

(ii) Simple barometer is not portable. So, it cannot be used by airmen, navigators, mountaineers, who need a portable barometer.

### Solution 31

We don't feel uneasy even under enormous pressure of the atmosphere above us because our blood also exerts a pressure called blood pressure, which is greater than atmospheric pressure. So, there is balance between our blood pressure and atmospheric pressure.

### Solution 32

Reading of a barometer would rise if it is taken to the mine as pressure increases with depth.

Reading of a barometer would fall if it is taken to a hill as pressure decreases with increase in height.

Reading of a barometer would fall if it is taken to a hill as pressure decreases with increase in height.

### Solution 33

Weight of solid in air = 2.10 N

Relative density of solid = 8.4

Now, Relative density = weight of solid in air/ loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in water = weight of solid in air/ Relative density.

Loss of weight of solid in water = 2.10/8.4 = 0.25 N.

Weight of solid in water = weight in air - loss of weight in water

Weight of solid in water = 2.10 - 0.25 =1.85 N.

Relative density of liquid =1.2

We know

Relative density of liquid = Loss of weight of solid in liquid/loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in liquid = Relative density X loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in liquid = 1.2 X 0.25 = 0.3 N.

Weight of solid in liquid = weight of solid in air - loss of weight of solid in liquid.

Weight of solid in liquid = 2.10 - 0.3 = 1.8 N.

Relative density of solid = 8.4

Now, Relative density = weight of solid in air/ loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in water = weight of solid in air/ Relative density.

Loss of weight of solid in water = 2.10/8.4 = 0.25 N.

Weight of solid in water = weight in air - loss of weight in water

Weight of solid in water = 2.10 - 0.25 =1.85 N.

Relative density of liquid =1.2

We know

Relative density of liquid = Loss of weight of solid in liquid/loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in liquid = Relative density X loss of weight of solid in water.

Loss of weight of solid in liquid = 1.2 X 0.25 = 0.3 N.

Weight of solid in liquid = weight of solid in air - loss of weight of solid in liquid.

Weight of solid in liquid = 2.10 - 0.3 = 1.8 N.

### Solution 34

Density of iron is 7800Kgm

This means a cube of iron having side 1m would weigh 7800 Kg.

Density of water at 4

^{-3}.This means a cube of iron having side 1m would weigh 7800 Kg.

Density of water at 4

^{o}C is 1000 Kgm^{-3}.### Solution 35

Relative density of body = 0.52

Density of water at 4

Density of body = 0.52 X 1000 Kgm

We know density = mass X volume.

Mass = density X volume

Mass = 520 X 2 =1040 Kg.

Mass of given body is 1040 Kg.

Density of water at 4

^{o}C = 1000 Kgm^{-3}.Density of body = 0.52 X 1000 Kgm

^{-3}= 520 Kgm^{-3}We know density = mass X volume.

Mass = density X volume

Mass = 520 X 2 =1040 Kg.

Mass of given body is 1040 Kg.

### Solution 36

Piece of metal weighs in air = 44.5 f

Piece of metal weighs in liquid = 39.5 f.

Loss of weight of metal in liquid = 44.5 - 39.5 = 5f.

Relative density = weight of solid in air/ loss of weight of solid in water.

Relative density of liquid =44.5f/5f =8.9

Relative density of liquid = 8.9

Piece of metal weighs in liquid = 39.5 f.

Loss of weight of metal in liquid = 44.5 - 39.5 = 5f.

Relative density = weight of solid in air/ loss of weight of solid in water.

Relative density of liquid =44.5f/5f =8.9

Relative density of liquid = 8.9

### Solution 37

### Solution 38

Principle of floatation states that a floatating body displaces an amount of fluid equal to its own weight.

Ship is designed in such a manner that it encloses large quantity of air in air tight bags and in rooms and corridors which makes the average density of ship less than that of water.

### Solution 40

Acid battery hydrometer is used to check the concentration of sulphuric acid in an acid battery.

### Solution 41

Iron nail has density less than that of mercury so it will float on the surface of mercury but in the case of water it will sink because the density of iron nail is more than that of water.

### Solution 43

### Solution 44

(i) A balloon filled with hydrogen has low density than air so it rises over the air but as height increases density of air decreases and at a certain height the density of hydrogen in balloon and density of air become equal. And as there is no density difference there is no pressure difference also and hence balloon stops rising further.

(ii) Density of egg is greater than fresh water so it sinks in fresh water but due to addition of salt density of water increases which makes the density of salt water greater than egg and hence floats in a strong solution of salt.

(iii) The bottom of the hydrometer is made heavier by loading it with lead shots so that it floats vertically with some of its portion outside the surface of water in the jar.

(iv) Relative density of Ice is = 0.9 cm

Relative density of sea water is = 1 cm

(Density of ice / Density of sea water) = fraction submerged of iceberg

0.9/1 = fraction of iceberg submerged

Fraction of iceberg submerged = 9/10.

Thus in colder countries where there are icebergs in oceans, only about 1/10 is seen above water and the remaining water 9/10 remain submerged. Hence, there is danger of these icebergs to the ships sailing in these oceans.
