Unformatted text preview: In this experiment 3 types of flow meters were used: . Pitot tube, which was used to measure the point velocity. . Orifice plate and venturi and these were used to to calculate the flow rates directly. The discharge coefficient of orifice was 1.1955 with error 92.8% and it is high compared with discharg coefficient of venturi 0.9233 with error 5.78%. high error could be from incorrect reading of data or the volume measured was not exactly 5liters, and To avoid this prplem we shoul change the valves. REFRENCES:...
