PREFACE
This book doesnt make promise but provide complete satisfaction to the readers. The market scenario is confusing and readers dont find the optimum quality books. This book provides complete set of problems appeared in competition exam as well as fresh set of problems. The book is categorized into units which are sub-divided into chapters. The aim of the book is to avoid the unnecessary elaboration and highlights only those concepts are techniques which are absolutely necessary. Again time is crucial factor both from the point of view of preparation duration and time taken for solving each problem in the book are those which take the least distance to the solution. But however to make a comment that the book is absolute for GATE preparation will be an inappropriate one. The theory for the preparation of the examination should be followed from the standard books.

The reaction forces in equation (i) and (ii) are actually exerted by the tee on the water in the control volume. The reaction of the water on the tee is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. From conservation of mass principle, o +v o =v o v o V # pD = o =v o v o =v v Also Further # p( ) = . m s m s

Therefore Navier stokes equation, for x -momentum viscous terms u = , 2u = 2 u = a , 2 u = and 2 2 y 2x 2x 2 y So =2 u + 2 u G = 0 2 2 x y Therefore, x -momentum viscous term is zero.

Option (A) is correct. From Navier-stokes equation, x -component of 2p ;u du + v du E = + m =2 u + 2 u G dx dy x 2 x 2 y 2 Since u du = (2x + 3) # 2 = 4x + 6 , dx

2u = 0 and 2 u = 2 2 y x Hence, the x -momentum is 2p [4x + 6] = 2 x 2p = r ( 4x 6) 2 x Now y -component of Navier stokes equation for this flow 2p ;u dv + v dv E = + m =2 v + 2 v G dx dy y 2 x 2 y 2 u dv = (2x + 3) # 8x = (16x2 + 24x) dx v dv = ( 2y + 4x2) # ( 2) = 4y 8x2 dy 2 v = 8 and 2 v = 2 2 y x Hence, y -momentum is [16x2 + 24x + 4y - 8x2 ] = 2p + m] g 2 y
