12 Marks

d) State the names of any two boiler mountings and any two boiler accessories e) State Dattons law of partial pressure f) Stat Stefan Boltzman law g) Define a Black body used in heat transfer h) State zeroth law of thermodynamics Q.1 B) Answer any TWO of the following: a) Draw a labeled sketch of bio-gas plant. State two application of bio-gas b) State the sources of air leakage in condensers c) A certain gas at high pressure and high temp. first expands adiabatically. After adiabatic expansion, it is compressed isothermally to its original volume. After this, the gas is heated at const. volume, so that gas is restored to original temperature. Represent this cycle on P-V and T-S diagram. 08 Marks
