1) INTRODUCTION: Venturi Meter was named after the Italian physicist, Giovanni Battista Venturi, which is used to calculate the Venturi effect. The Venturi effect is the drop in the fluid pressure due to an incompressible fluid flow in a constricted section of a pipe. However, the device has been used for measuring the rate of flow along a pipe using two manometers; one at upstream and the other at the throat because the flow is proportional to a difference in pressure. That pressure difference is due to the accelerating velocity from the inlet section to the throat which causes a fall in pressure. Moreover, the Bernoulli equation along with the continuity equation comes handy in this lab. They are used to calculate the velocity of the flow at different sections, the theoretical flow rates as well as the difference in pressure between the sections . 2) PROCEDURE: Level the apparatus first and get the venture meter ready for the experiment. When ready, open the supply valve which will cause a rise in a piezometer levels and
