Unformatted text preview: Theoretically the slope should be around 0.5 which is the case for this experiment. These plots showed that the most accurate flowmeter with the highest coefficient was nozzle meter. Some reasons for that together with the advantages and disadvantages of using one or the other flowmeter were discussed in DISCUSSION part. Since the Reynolds Numbers indicated that the flow was turbulent during nearly the whole experiment, the correction factor set to 1 was a good assumption. Morover the inconsistency with the theoretical and experimental friction factors indicated the high relative roughness of the pipe and probale reading errors. Finally it should be stated that the obtained experimental values were in most parts really consistent with the theoretical ones whereas in some parts there were considerable deviations due to the factors previously stated....
