Unformatted text preview: gravity of 2.6. What is the pressure in pipe B in psi corresponding to the differential reading shown? 1/2 5. Determine the elevation difference Δ h , between the water levels in the two open tanks shown. 6. A closed, 5-m tall tank is filled with water to a depth of 4-m. The top portion of the tank is filled with air which is at a 20-kPa. Determine the pressure that the water exerts on the bottom of the tank . 7. On the suction side of a pump a Bourdon pressure gage reads 40-kPa vacuum. What is the corresponding absolute pressure in kPa if the local atmospheric pressure is 100 kPa (abs)? 8. Manometer A reads 100-mm of water while manometer B reads ½-in of mercury. Which one is showing higher pressure? Explain with calculations . 9. As shown in the accompanying figure, pipe M contains carbon tetra chloride at 103.0-kPa while pipe N contains an oil at 171.6-kPa. . Find the difference ‘ x ’ between the levels of mercury. 2/2...
