Unformatted text preview: ME 309 Fall 2008 Section 2 (Merkle) Homework # 25 Due Fri 1 Nov 2008 Problem 26-1 . Methanol at 300 K ( ρ = 788.4, μ =.5.857e-4) flows through a 40 mm pipe and is measured by an orifice meter with a 30 mm diameter orifice that is equipped with corner taps. The differential pressure is measured by a mercury ( ρ = 13,600) manometer as 110 mm . Find the mass flow rate of methanol and the average velocity. Solution: Given: density of working fluid and manometer fluid, height difference in manometer, pipe and orifice diameters, corner taps Find: flow rate and average velocity Assumptions: steady, fully developed flow Constant properties Incompressible fluid Analysis: Calculate pressure drop across taps: ( ) ( ) Pa h g p p meth Hg 820 , 13 110 . * 807 . 9 * 4 . 788 600 , 13 * * 2 1 =- = Δ- =- ρ ρ Discharge coefficient for corner tap/orifice plate: 2 75 . 5 . 2 8 1 . 2 Re * 71 . 91 * 184 . * 0312 . 5959 .
