ME 3720 HOMEWORK SET-2 1. A barometric pressure of 19.4-in of Hg corresponds to what value of atmospheric pressure in psi, and in Pa? 2. A water filled U-tube manometer is used to measure the pressure inside a tank that contains air. The water level in the U-tube on the side that connects to the tank is 5-ft above the base of the tank. The water level in the other side of the U-tube (which is open to the atmosphere) is 2-ft above the base. Determine the pressure within the tank in lb/ft 2 and kPa . 3. A U-tube manometer is connected to a closed tank as shown in figure. The air pressure in the tank as shown is 0.50-psi and the liquid in the tank is oil (Sp. Wt. = 54.0-lb/ft 3 ). The pressure at point A is 2-psi. Determine: (i) the depth of oil ‘z’ (ii) the differential reading ‘h’ on the manometer 1/4
