Lab - 4 Momentum Flux Determine forces on a surface due to a jet impinging on it Over what ranges of forces can good agreement (consistently less than 10% ) be expected with each deflector Over what range of forces consistently produced differences of more than 10 % with a particular deflector Did you observe anything that can explain these large differences Suggestions for improvement ± ±

To investigate the interaction between reactive forces and directional changes in momentum flux we use the momentum apparatus: V 2 F = mg α V ) cos 1 ( 2 α ρ - = A Q F These equation is derived from Newton’s 2nd law of motion, Bernoulli, and the continuity equation ……………..(1) F = Reactive vertical force on the target = mg Q = discharge from the jet = V/t A = area of the jet = D= diameter of jet= 8 mm = angle of the exiting jet= 30,90 and 120 degree Where, 4 2 D π α V1 V 2
Assumptions Constant external pressure on the fluid jet so that the pressure in the fluid remains constant as it moves over a deflector Frictional resistance due to fluid-deflector interaction is negligible

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
