PTU, B.Tech, 1st Sem., Elements of Mechanical Engineering papers


Engineering is a course that requires knowledge about several subjects. That is the prime reason why engineering students are taught about few subjects in their very first semester. Elements of Mechanical Engineering are one such paper.

Paper Description:

The elements of mechanical engineering paper deals with the study of various parts of physics in specifications. These parts include the Heat and work section, the vector part, the energy part, the energy and matter balance etc. the subjects also includes study of various mechanical processes involved and its efficiency. The paper also includes study of thermodynamics and kinetics of matters.

Frequently asked questions:

Few questions which get repeated almost every year in the paper are ‘Difference between heat and work’, ‘what are the laws of thermodynamics’, or ‘deduce the expression along with Law of Thermodynamics’. Apart from these, there are few topics which are also important from the examination point of view. These topics are PPM1, COP, pulleys, elasticity, heat engines, Carnot cycle etc. Numerical are also asked from these above mentioned topics.

Paper pattern:

The question paper of elements of mechanical engineering has 9 questions in it. The first question, question number 1 is compulsory to be answered. This particular question has 10 sub questions of 2 marks each. Section A is composed of this question only. Section B and Section C of the paper has 4 questions in it. Each question in these sections is of 8 marks each.
