Question: air flows through a pipe at 20c a venturi meter...

Question details

Air flows through a pipe at 20°C. A venturi meter is introduced in the flow to measure the flowrate. The throat diameter of the venturi meter is 10 mm and the diameter of the pipe is 25 mm. Assuming steady state, what is the pressure drop in the venturi meter in mm of H20 when: (d) flow rate through the pipe is 102 m/s (e) flow rate through the pipe is 103m/s. () flow rate through the pipe is 10 m/s. 3. What assumptions did you make during your calculations? Check the validity of the assumptions. At what flow rates can I use manometers to measure the pressure drop? Properties of air and water can be obtained from Appendix B of the text book. Assume density of air to be 0.95 kg/m
