Problem 3.32 [Difficulty: 3] Given: Inclined manometer as shown. D9 6 m m = d8 m m = Angle θ is such that the liquid deflection L is five times that of a regular U-tube manometer. Find: Angle θ and manometer sensitivity. Solution: We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system. Governing Equation: dp dz ρ g = (Hydrostatic Pressure - z is positive upwards) Assumptions: (1) Static liquid (2) Incompressible liquid x Integrating the hydrostatic pressure equation we get: Δ p ρ g Δ z = Applying this equation from point 1 to point 2: p 1 ρ g x L sin θ () + () p 2 = Upon simplification: p 1 p 2 ρ g x L sin θ () + () = Since the volume of the fluid must remain constant: π 4 D 2 x π 4 d 2 L = x d D
