Question: for the manometer in this problem the right side is...

Question details

For the manometer in this problem, the right side is sealed and there are no fluids 1 and 2. The left side is left open to the surrounding environment. The working fluid is mercury (S.G. = 13.7) and is at a height (h) of 80 cm. The gravitational acceleration, g, is 9.8 m/s2.

𝑃1 + 𝜌1𝑔𝑑1 = 𝑃2 + 𝜌2𝑔𝑑2 + 𝜌1𝑔h

  1. Simplify the general manometer equation.

  2. What does this manometer measure?

  3. What is the pressure on the open end (in kPa)? Hint: Pa = N/m2, N =

    kg•m/ s2.
