A manometer is configured as shown in Figure 4.67. A heavy
fluid (Fluid B) has been placed in the bottom of the manometer; a light fluid
(Fluid A) has been added to the left side only. The left side of the manometer
is connected to a process stream in which water (25_C, Fluid C) is
flowing; the right side is open to the atmosphere (Fluid D). The manometer is
being used to measure the pressure difference p1 – p2.
The density of the two fluids in the manometer are 1.75 and 13.6 g/cm3 . What
is the pressure difference p1 – p2in terms of fluid
heights and fluid densities? For h1 = 2.3 cm, h2= 2.
