ME3332 - Spring 11 - Quiz # 1 Problem 2 Consider the dual inclined tube manometer system below. If P A , the pressure in open system A, is equal to 10 P B , the pressure in open system B, ﬁnd H 1 in terms of the other variables given and the gravitational constant, g . (30 pts) First, we note that the pressure due to each leg of the manometer can be determined by integration of the hydrostatic equation for constant density: P = ρgh Summing the pressures from open system A to open system B in terms of vertical length:
