The fluid property, due to which, mercury does not wet the glass is

Laminar flow of a Newtonion fluid ceases to exist, when the Reynolds number exceeds

When the momentum of one fluid is used for moving another fluid, such a device is called a/an

The normal stress is the same in all directions at a point in a fluid, when the fluid is

Head developed by a centrifugal pump depends on its

Hydraulic mean depth (D_{m}) for a circular pipe of diameter 'D' flowing full is 0.25 D. For a circular channel, at D_{m} = 0.3 D, gives the condition for the maximum

The head loss in turbulent flow in a pipe varies

Most commonly used joint in the underground pipe lines is the

Schedule number of a pipe, which is a measure of its wall thickness, is given by

The net positive suction head (NPSH) of a centrifugal pump is defined as the sum of the velocity head and the pressure head at the
