Question details

Problem 3. Orifice meter (is basically a type of flow meter) are used to measure the flow rate of a fluid. In an experiment, the flow coefficient, K of an orifice is found by collecting and weighing water flowing through the orifice during a certain interval while the orifice is under a constant head. K is calculated from the following formula: tAp(2gAh) The value of the parameters has been determined to be as follows Mass, M 393.00 0.03 kg Time, t = 600.0 ± 1 s Density, ρ = 1000.0 ± 0.190 kg/m3 Diameter, d 1.2700.0025 cm (A is the area) Head, Ah 366.0+ 0.3 cm (a) Find the maximum flow coefficient, K with uncertainty. (15 points) (b) which variable contributes the most to the overall uncertainty? (5 points) See the hint # 2 in problem # 1
