I yr B.Tech. IT (SS) BRANCH SECOND ASSESSMENT October 19, 2012 Time: 50 min. PH8151 - ENGINEERING PHYSICS ( Max.

Mark: 25) Part - A Answer ALL Questions (5 2 = 10 Mark ) 1. Why does your voice sound dierent over the telephone than in person? 2. The intensity level of an orchestra is 85 dB. A single violin acheives a level of 70 dB. How does the intensity of the sound of the full orchestra compare with that of the violins sound? 3. For an empty assembly hall of size 20 m X 15 m X 5 m the reverberation time ( R-time) is 4.0 s. Calculate the average sound absorption coecient of the hall. 4. One morning you walk barefoot across a rug onto a tiled oor. The rug and the oor are at the same temperature, yet the tiled oor feels much colder. Explain why. 5. A bullock cart tyre is iron (coecient of linear expansion = 12.00 106 /, Youngs modulus = 2.00 1011 N/m2 ). It is essentially circular with an initial mean radius of 75 cm, a breadth of 5 cm and a thickness of 6 mm. If the tyre just ts snugly over the wooden wheel when heated to a temperature of 500 , what is the tension in the tyre when it cools to a temperature of 27 ? Part - B ( 15 Mark ) 6. (a) Explain any one of the ultrasonic generators (Magentostriction/ Piezoelectric) with neat circuit diagram. (OR) (b) Describe with neat diagram of various strokes in any one of the heat engines (Otto / Diesel) and obtain the expression for its eceiency. I yr B.Tech.
