INTRODUCTION : It is important in chemical engineering to take the measurment of the flow rates in pipes. There are several devices used for this purpose such as a pitot tube, orifice plate and venturi. These devices are used to measure the preasure drop by the use of a manometer and converting the pressures to flow rates by different equations. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND :...
