## Two pipes containing

the same fluid of density

connected using a
differential manometer.
What is the pressure
between the two pipes if
the manometer contains

h b = 0.75 m

h = 0.5 m

## PA- PB = 1g(b-a) + gh(man - 1)

= 9.81x103(0.75-1.5)+ 0.5(13.6 x 9.81x103 9.81 x 103)
= 9.81 x 103 (-0.75+0.5 x 12.6)
= 54.4 x 103 N/m2

## EXAMPLE 2.6 - DIFFERENTIAL MANOMETER

A differential manometer containing mercury is connected to
two pipes A and B. The pipe A contains a liquid of specific
gravity 1.4 and the other pipe B, contains oil of specific
gravity 0.85. If the pressure between the two pipes is 1.2 x
105 N/m2, determine the different in mercury levels, x.

In the figure:

## Pz = PA + liquidg (5) + Hgg(x)

Pz = PB + oilg(1.5 + x)

But

## Given PA - PB = 1.2 x 105 N/m2

Differential Manometer

## Used for measuring pressure differences between

points along a pipe.

## 2.6. ADVANCES TO THE INVERTED

DIFFERENTIAL MANOMETER

The "U"-tube manometer has the disadvantage that the change in height of
the liquid in both sides must be read. This can be avoided by making the
diameter of one side very large compared to the other. In this case the side
with the large area moves very little when the small area side move
considerably more.

MANOMETER

## Assume the manometer is arranged as above to measure the pressure

difference of a gas of (negligible density) and that pressure difference is
p1-p2. If the datum line indicates the level of the manometric fluid when
the pressure difference is zero and the height differences when pressure is
applied is as shown, the volume of liquid transferred from the left side to
the right = z2 x (d2 / 4)
And the fall in level of the left side is
volume moved
area of left side
z 2 ( d 2 / 4)
=
D 2 / 42
= z 2 ( d / D)

MANOMETER

We know from the theory of the "U" tube manometer that the height
different in the two columns gives the pressure difference so,
p1 - p 2 g(z1 z 2 )

## Quiz 1 CMT 574

The left leg of a U-tube mercury manometer is connected to a pipe line
conveying water, the level of mercury (specific gravity 13.6) in the leg
being 60 cm below the centre of pipe line and the right leg is open to
atmosphere. The level of mercury in the right leg is 45 cm above that in
the left leg and the space above mercury in the right leg contains
Benzene (specific gravity 0.88) to a height of 30 cm. Find the pressure
in the pipe.

## In figure, fluid A is water and fluid B is mercury. What will be

the difference in level h1 if the pressure at X is 140 kN/m2
and h2 = 1.5 m.
