Problem 3.28 [Difficulty: 2] Given: Reservoir manometer with vertical tubes of knowm diameter. Gage liquid is Meriam red oil D 18 mm = d 6 mm = SG oil 0.827 = (From Table A.1, App. A) Find: The manometer deflection, L when a gage pressure equal to 25 mm of water is applied to the reservoir. Solution: We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system. Governing Equations: dp dh ρ g = (Hydrostatic Pressure - h is positive downwards) ρ SG ρ water = (Definition of Specific Gravity) Assumptions: (1) Static liquid (2) Incompressible liquid Integrating the hydrostatic pressure equation we get: Δ p ρ g Δ h = Beginning at the free surface of the reservoir, and accounting for the changes in pressure with elevation: p atm Δ p + ρ oil g x L + ( ) + p atm

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
