Applications of the Bernoulli equation Laboratory section: 004 Name: Fahad Al Jaberi TA: Feng Wan Date of experiment: 10/01/08 (I did this work myself) Purpose: This experiment deals with applying Bernoulli’s equation and measure the discharge on several flows by measuring the difference in pressure and by using the method of continuity to know the velocities of the flow and therefore know the discharge. A comparison must be made to know the difference between the calculated and the experimentally obtained values. However, Bernoulli’s equation is used only for steady, incompressible, inviscid flow along the streamline. Apparatus and procedure: Venturi Meter: o Using pipe 2, we set three different speeds (60, 80, 100 volts) o For each voltage, we measure h from the large manometer where p=γ w h. o We calculate Q ideal using Bernoulli and continuity equations. o We measure h mean from the stagnation tubes by calculate the height at r=0.75inch and take the difference with the static and then calculate the mean velocity. o Calculate the volumetric flow rate Q real using the mean velocity Q real =A 1 V 1(mean) . o Calculate the discharge correction coefficient C v = o Calculate the Reynolds number for the flow at the throat Re= o We also read Q real from the Hasting electronic meter Q=Q Hasting *K(m 3 /min)
