Following are some of the multiple choice questions on the engineering-mechanics with answers that will help the students in developing their knowledge.

(1)The friction experienced by a body, when in motion, is known as

Show answer

(2)Two balls of equal mass and of perfectly elastic material are lying on the floor. One of the ball with velocity v is made to struck the second ball. Both the balls after impact will move with a velocity

Show answer

(3)The velocity ratio in case of an inclined plane inclined at angle θ to the horizontal and weight being pulled up the inclined plane by vertical effort is

Show answer

(4)A body of weight W is required to move up on rough inclined plane whose angle of inclination with the horizontal is α. The effort applied parallel to the plane is given by(where μ = tanφ = Coefficient of friction between the plane and the body.)
