If your mount is not declared in /etc/fstab you should mention both device and mountpoint.
For example:

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /bootable

The directory to which you mount should already exist.

You mention in the example /dev/sdb, this is the disk not the partition. Mostly it will have a number attached.

you can check the partitionnumber using:

sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb

oh thanks my disk contains 2 partition whether i want mount one by one in same directory ? –  Premkumar Feb 27 '14 at 12:42
You can not mount 2 partitions to the same directory, it are 2 separate parts of the disk. So mount to 2 different directories if you need both. –  Requist Feb 27 '14 at 12:45

You have to use the command

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 

You can change /dev/sdb1 with whichever drive you want.
