Abstract: This experiment was designed to demonstrate the characteristics of a flow meter and a sharp-edge orifice. Variables such as frequency of the fan and location along the tube for the flow apparatus were changed. We collected data that helped evaluate the air flow. With this data, we were able to determine losses due to friction. Pressure drops in this experiment were measured across the orifice meter and observed as a function of flow rate. To measure the velocity profile in the straight pipe, a Pitot tube was used at three different locations along the pipe. The flow rate was set at 35 Hz and 45 Hz. The measurements were taken at each location. A manometer was used to the measure the pressures. Then the head flow, the coefficient of discharge, and the loss of coefficient were calculated. We used the data to plot the flow rate vs. the pressure drop across the orifice. Results:
