**Q.**

At Deoprayag (Garhwal, UP) river Alaknanda mixes with the river Bhagirathi and becomes river Ganga. Suppose Alaknanda has a width of 12 m, Bhagirathi has a width of 8 m and Ganga has a width of 16 m. Assume that the depth of water is same in the three rivers. Let the average speed of water in Alaknanda be 20 km h^{-1} and in Bhagirathi be 16 km h^{-1}. Find the average speed of water in the river Ganga.

**Q.**A iron rod of length 50 cm is joined at an end to an aluminum rod of length 100 cm. All measurements refer to 20∘C. The coefficients of linear expansion of iron and aluminum are 12×10−6/∘C and 24×10−6/∘C respectively. The average coefficient of composite system is

**Q.**Two rods of length L2 and coefficient of linear expansion α2 are connected freely to a third rod of length L1 of coefficient of linear expansion α1 to form an isosceles triangle. The arrangement is supported on the knife edge at the midpoint of L1 which is horizontal. The apex of the isosceles triangle is to remain at a constant distance from the knife edge if

**Q.**You measure the length of a brass rod on a hot July afternoon and on a cool January evening, using the same aluminium scale. To your surprise, you find that the rod length is measured to be smaller on the summer day! How?

Aluminium expands more on heating than brass

Aluminium expands lesser than brass on heating

Brass shrinks on heating

None of these
