Problem 3.26[Difficulty: 2]Given:Water flow in an inclined pipe as shown. The pressure difference ismeasured with a two-fluid manometerL5ft⋅=h6in⋅=SGHg13.55=(From Table A.1, App. A)Find:Pressure difference between A and BSolution:We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system.Governing Equations:dpdhρg⋅=(Hydrostatic Pressure - h is positive downwards)ρSGρwater⋅=(Definition of Specific Gravity)Assumptions:(1) Static liquid(2) Incompressible liquid(3) Gravity is constantIntegrating the hydrostatic pressure equation we get:Δpρg⋅Δh⋅=Progressing through the manometer from A to B:
