Engineering Mathematics   Linear Algebra
Question 1 Explanation: 
\begin{aligned} (P+Q)^{2} &=P^{2}+P Q+Q P+Q^{2} \\ &=P \cdot P+P \cdot Q+Q \cdot P+Q \cdot Q \\ &=P^{2}+P Q+Q P+Q^{2} \end{aligned}

3
B
0
C
-1
D
-2
Engineering Mathematics   Calculus
Question 2 Explanation: 
\begin{aligned} I &= \int_{0}^{2}\frac{(x-1)^2 \sin (x-1)}{(x-1)^2 + \cos (x-1)}dx\\ \text{Taking}\; x-1=z&\Rightarrow dx=dz \\ \text{for}\; x=0,&z\rightarrow -1\; \text{and}\; x=2, z \rightarrow 1 \\ \therefore \; I &=\int_{-1}^{1} \frac{z^2 \sin z}{z^2+\cos z}dz\\ \text{let}\;\; f(z)&=\frac{z^2 \sin z}{z^2+ \cos z} dz\\ f(-z) &= \frac{z^2 \sin z}{z^2+ \cos z}\\ f(z)&= -f(z) \; \text{function is ODD}\\ \therefore \;\; I&=0 \end{aligned}
Question 3
The solution of the initial value problem \frac{\mathrm{d} y}{\mathrm{d} x}= -2xy; y(0)=2 is
A
1+e^{-x^{2}}
B
2e^{-x^{2}}
C
1+e^{x^{2}}
D
2e^{x^{2}}
Engineering Mathematics   Differential Equations
Question 3 Explanation: 
\frac{d y}{d x}=2 x y=0 \qquad ...(1)
I F.=e^{\int 2 x d x}=e^{x^{2}}
Multiplying I.F. to both side of equation (1)
e^{x^{2}}\left[\frac{d y}{d x}+2 x y\right]=0
\Rightarrow \frac{d}{d x}\left(e^{x^{2}} y\right)=0
e^{x^{2}} y=c
from the given boundary condition, C=2
\therefore e^{x^{2}} y=2
y=2 e^{-x^{2}}
Question 4
A nationalized bank has found that the daily balance available in its savings accounts follows a normal distribution with a mean of Rs. 500 and a standard deviation of Rs. 50. The percentage of savings account holders, who maintain an average daily balance more than Rs. 500 is _______
A
12%
B
65%
C
98%
D
50%
Engineering Mathematics   Probability and Statistics
Question 4 Explanation: 
49 to 51
Z=\frac{x-\mu}{\sigma}
\text { Given, } x=500, \mu=500, \sigma=50
\therefore \quad z=\frac{500-500}{50}=0
\therefore P(0)=50 \%
Question 5
Laplace transform of cos(\omega t) is \frac{s}{s^{2}+\omega ^{2}}. The Laplace transform of e^{-2t}cos(4t) is
A
\frac{s-2}{(s-2)^{2}+16}
B
\frac{s+2}{(s-2)^{2}+16}
C
\frac{s-2}{(s+2)^{2}+16}
D
\frac{s+2}{(s+2)^{2}+16}
Engineering Mathematics   Differential Equations
Question 5 Explanation: 
Given L \cos (\omega t)=\frac{s}{s^{2}+\omega^{2}}
\Rightarrow L\left(e^{-2 t} \cos 4 t\right)=?
By the given formula
\Rightarrow \quad L(\cos 4 t)=\frac{s}{s^{2}+16}
\Rightarrow L\left(e^{2 t} \cos 4 t\right)=\frac{s+2}{(s+2)^{2}+16}
( \because By using first shifting property of Laplace)
Hence option should be (D).
Question 6
In a statically determinate plane truss, the number of joints (j) and the number of members (m) are related by
A
j=2m-3
B
m=2j+1
C
m=2j-3
D
m=2j-1
Theory of Machine   Planar Mechanisms
Question 6 Explanation: 
A simple truss is formed by enlarging the basic truss element which contains three members and three joints, by adding two additional members for each additional joint, so the total number of members m in a simple truss is given by
m=3+2(j-3)=2 j-3
where m= number of members
j= total number of joints (including those attached to the supports)
