b) Trapezoidal Rule

c)Average ordinate Rule

Compare the results.

Unit-4

7) i) Explain Parallel axis theorem.                                                                               4

ii) A body lying on a horizontal plane is moved slowly along the plane                        10

when a horizontal force of 100 N is applied to the body .

Also a force of 90 N is applied to the body at angle of 30˚to the horizontal ,

moves the body along the same plane. Determine the weight of the body and

coefficient of friction.

OR

8) i)State law of friction.                                                                                               4

sir I have 1 year and 1 sem back by basic civil and engineering machanics(BE204) so please tell me will I have to attend new syllabus question paper.

9. Sandy Deepi says:

mechanics is one of the most intresting and natural subject///////but its after d preparation

10. Rachita Mishra says:

mechanics is one of the two major sub-fields of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws describing the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The study of the motion of bodies is an ancient one, making classical mechanics one of the oldest and largest subjects in science, engineering and technology. mechanics and civil are both link to each other. here questions are given

11. Shilpa Ranjan says:

This post contains some of the selected questions of mechanics and civil.This is good for checking one’s knowledge related to the paper.
