Practice Problems on Fluid Statics C. Wassgren, Purdue University Page 4 of 12 Last Updated: 2010 Aug 30 manometry_04 Determine the deflection, h , in the manometer shown below in terms of A 1 , A 2 , p , g , and H2O . Determine the sensitivity of this manometer. The manometer sensitivity, s , is defined here as the change in the elevation difference, h , with respect to a change in the applied pressure, p :  dh s dp Manometers with larger sensitivity will give larger changes in h for the same p .
