Unformatted text preview: experiment? 5. Sample calculations: Calculate the flow rate based on the following measured quantities using the venturi meter: the venturi meter head drop is 0.5176ftwater, the contraction diameter is 51.054mm, the discharge coefficient is 0.935, the water density is 996.9kg/m^3, and air density is 1.138kg/m^3. (Hint: use the data reduction equation for Q.)...
