A system is equipped with two pressure gages and a manometer, as shown in Fig. P3–148. For Δh = 12 cm, determine the pressure difference
Solution to 140P
We need to find the pressure difference between two pressure gages for a differential height of Δh=12 cm as given in the question.
Specific gravity of manometer fluid=2.15
Specific gravity of oil=0.87
Differential height in manometer=0.12m
Standard density of water=1000kg/m3
Specific gravity of a fluid
is the density of fluid.
is the density of water(standard liquid)
g=acceleration due to gravity
h=height of liquid
The pressure increases as we go down the tube and decreases as we go upwards the tube. Thus adding the pressures in the system from P2 to P1.
is the pressure at the first gage.
pressure at second gage.
is the pressure at the manometer.
is the pressure above oil.
