experiment, the hydraulic jump inherit the characteristic of a steady jump (Fr=4.5-9) which has energy dissipation of 45-70% mainly due to the turbulent occurred during the jump. (General) talk about comparison between different jumps 5.0 Conclusions Based on the lab results and the comparison, the data does not match with the theoretical results perfectly. Overall, the data got in the experiment are all smaller than the theoretical ones. The errors were made due to the calibration error, human error, equipment deficiency, and energy loss due to friction and turbulence. However, the slope of the experimental data is similar to the theoretical one, indicating that the errors existed in each trial of the experiment, as they were consistent in each trial, causing similar inaccuracy. Some of the sources of error cannot be avoided, but the human error should be controlled. The reading of the data could be more precise, for instance, one could get used to the fluctuation, then read off the flow meter to minimize the uncertainty brought by the fluctuating water surface.

    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.
