ME 323 Lab Report Experiment #3 Venturi Meter September 28, 2007 Submitted by: John Luff Submitted to: Dr. Perwez Kalim Division of Engineering and Physics Wilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Abstract In this experiment a team of five students used the combination of a venturi meter and manometer in order to measure the flow rate or discharge of a pipe. Through the course of the experiment both actual and theoretical discharge were calculated using the obtained time and manometer readings. Though the beginning of the in-lab experiment got off to a rough start, for the most the lab went smoothly, and although our C values seem to be a little off, we produced very good graphical Log and values. 2 Experimental Data & Procedure Table 1 No .
