    4 Quiz (23 Nos)


    UNIT V

    Various questions are selected from different universities (VTU, Autonomous etc) question papers from the year 2002-2012. Along with the above questions, many more typical numericals, theory and quiz questions are discussed.

    The content is so clear that there is no need for a student/learner to refer any other books. This is also helpful to prepare for interview and to face any competitive exams.

    If you have any doubts or think it can be made more useful/understanding please contact me @

    I am working on releasing the other UNIT like moment of inertia, simple stresses and strains, SFD and BMD, equilibrium of forces, friction and many more.

    Stay tuned!!!!
    All the best for your exams!! :)
