Correct Option: C
Time average of fluctuating velocity is zero.
 A frictionless circular piston of area 10^{2}m^{2} and mass 100 kg sinks into a cylindrical container of the same area filled with water of density 1000 kg/m^{3} as shown in the figure. The container has a hole of area 10–3m2 at the bottom that is open to the atmosphere. Assuming there is no leakage from the edges of the piston and considering water to be incompressible, the magnitude of the piston velocity (in m/s) at the instant shown is _________ (correct to three decimal places).

u_{x} = √2gh
= √2 × 9.8 × 0.5
u_{x} = 3.13 m/s
Now for distance x
we require u_{x} so–x = u_{x} . t + 1 × a × b 2
x = 3.13 t
(∵ acceleration (a) = 0 in horizontal direction)Now for t ⇒ y = u_{y}t + 1 gt² 2 ⇒ 0.5 = 0 + 1 × 9.81 × t² [∵ u_{y} = 0] 2
t = 0.319 sec.
so distance, x = 3.13 × 319 = 1mCorrect Option: B
