In case of an absorber, the operating _______________?

A. Line always lies above the equilibrium curve
B. Line always lies below the equilibrium curve
C. Line can be either above or below the equilibrium curve
D. Velocity is more than the loading velocity

Pick out the wrong statement about cavitation?

A. Sudden reduction of pressure in a fluid flow system caused by flow separation, vortex formation or abrupt closing of valve leads to cavitation
B. Cavitation may be caused due to boiling of liquid by decreasing the pressure resulting in
formation & collapse of vapor cavities
C. Cavitation begins at higher static pressure and lower velocity in larger diameter pipelines
resulting in audible noise
D. Large scale cavitation cannot damage pipeline, restrict fluid flow and damage steam turbine
