III B.Tech I Semester Supplementary Examinations, February 2007 INDUSTRIAL INSTRUMENTATION (Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering) Time: 3 hours Max Marks: 80 Answer any FIVE Questions All Questions carry equal marks

1. (a) Describe in detail about absolute and relative length measurement situations. (b) What are derived measurements, describe it in detail? (c) Describe in detail about standards and calibrations of length? 2. Explain the basic principle of (a) strain gauge Accelerometers (b) piezo electric Accelerometers [8+8] [6+5+5]

3. How will you measure speed? Discuss briefly the different methods to measure speed. [16] 4. A quartz crystal has the dimensions of 2mmx2mmx1mm. Quartz has the following properties charge sensitivity=21C/N.Young’smodulus= 8.6×1010 N/m2 Permitivity = 40.6×10−12 F/m . Calculate the value of force, charge, and voltage if the crystal is subjected to a strain of 10 × 10−6 m/m. [16] 5. (a) Distinguish between the terms vibration and shock (b) Using working of bonded strain gauge accelerometer. [8+8]

6. What is vibrating cylinder sensor? Explain briefly about vibrating twin tube sensor and give its applications. [16] 7. What are the industrial needs which make viscosity determination desirable? Classify the viscosity measuring instruments according to their principle of operation. [16] 8. (a) Explain how resistive transducers can be used for measurement and control of relative humidity. Describe its advantages and disadvantages. (b) Describe the theory and working of a sling psychrometer used for the measurement of relative humidity. What are its limitations? [8+8]
