Unformatted text preview: Problem Set 1 These are the problems that you should be able to solve by Sept 8: 2.8, 2.10, 2.12, 2.26, 2.32, 2.82 Taken out of Munson’s 5th edition For 6th Edition users, these problems are not completely listed. You will find 5th Ed problems 2.10, 2.32 and 2.82 correspond to 6th Ed problems: 2.9, 2.32 and 2.98 Except SI units are used in place of English. These are the problems that are not listed in the 6th: 2.8 The drain plug in a bathtub is designed to seal properly when there is a 0.05 psi pressure applied to it. How deep must the water be in the tub for the plug to seal? 2.12 Hydraulic Press, Fig 1. The plunger has an area of 1 in2, and a force, F1 can be applied to the plunger through a lever mechanism having a mechanical advantage of 8 to 1. If the large piston has an area of 150 in2, what load, F2, can be raised by a force of 30 lb applied to the lever? Neglect hydrostatic pressure variation. 2.26 A U‐tube manometer contains oil, mercury and water as shown in Fig 2. For the column heights indicated what is the pressure differential between indicated points A and B? ...
