Manometer problem The velocity of a flow can be found by measuring the total pressure ( ܲ ) measured at the forward stagnation point, and the static pressure ( ܲ ) in a region where the flow is parallel to the free stream over a significant distance. A device for making this measurement is a Pitot tube. The velocity is then given by the equation ܲ െܲ ߩܸ . A water manometer is connected both the total and static lines from a pitot tube and the difference in height between the legs of the manometer was measured to be 30 cm. What is the pressure difference between the total and static pressures? What is the speed of the flow? What is the Mach number? The air temperature is 298K. What is the Reynolds number for a wing model with a 20cm chord? Table from the inside cover of Munson, Young and Okiishi, “Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics,” 3 rd ed.

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.
