(a) A “U”-tube manometer containing mercury of density 13600 kg/m3is used to measure the pressure drop along a horizontal pipe. If the fluid in the pipe has a relative density of 0.8 and the manometer reading is 0.6m, what is the pressure difference measured by the manometer? [8 marks](b) A tank with vertical sides is filled with water to a depth of 4.0m. The water is covered with a layer of oil 0.5m thick. If the relative density of the oil is 0.8, find the resultant force (per unit width) and its line of action on the wall of the tank. [9 marks] (c) Water is being fired at 20 m/s from a hose of 80mm diameter into the atmosphere. The water leaves the hose through a nozzle with a diameter of 25mm at its exit. Find the pressure just upstream of the nozzle and the force on the nozzle.[8 marks] 1.a
