demonstrate the Bernoullis theorem. This experiment use the Bernoullis Theorem

Demonstration Apparatus. The apparatus contains of many part which are venture meter, pad

of manometer tube, pump, and water tank equipped with pump water controller, water host

and tubes. This experiment uses the venturi meter to measure the fluid flow through a pipe.

The venturi tube has converging and diverging portion that function of increasing and

decreasing the velocity of fluid and lower and higher the static pressure respectively. The

experiment is conducted for three times with different flow rates starting the first after the

level pressure of each manometer A, B, C, D, E and F is equal and stable. The flow rate was

taken as the water indicator reached at 3 liters of water level. Level pressure of each

manometer is measured as head loss. From the experiment conducted, we observed than when

fluids moves from a region of higher pressure to lower pressure, the velocity of the fluid

increases. There are a little bit differences on the speed of the flow and the pressure when we

use Bernoullis equation and Continuity equation to calculate velocity. Thus, we concluded

that the Bernoullis theorem is accepted. The experiment was a successfully and the

objectives are obtained.

INTRODUCTION

Bernoullis principle tells us that windows tend to explode rather than implode when

hurricanes. During the hurricanes, a very high speed of air outside the window leading to low

air pressure compare to inside, which the air is still. The differences of forces causing the

windows push outward and explode. That it is why to better open all windows during the

hurricane.

Another example of Bernoullis principle application is to determine the flow speed of

a fluid. The devices such as venturi meter or an orifice plate is used and can be placed into a

pipeline to reduce the diameter of the flow. The reduction in diameter will cause an increase

in the fluid flow speed, thus according to Bernoullis there must be decrease in pressure.

In his book, Daniel Bernoulli states that as the speed of a moving fluid (liquid or gas)

increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. He comes up this principle and published in

his book Hydrodynamica in 1738. The book describes the theory of water flowing through a

tube and water flowing from a hole in a container which explained the hydronomic pressure.

In order to demonstrate the Bernoullis principle, model: FM 24 Bernoullis

Theorem Demonstration apparatus is used. The apparatus consist of a classical Venturi made

of clear acrylic. A series of wall tapping allow measurement of the static pressure distribution

along the converging duct, while a total head tube is provided to transverse along the centre

line of the test section. These tapings are connected to a manometer bank incorporating a

manifold with air bleed valve. Pressurization of the manometers is facilitated by a hand pump.

This unit has been designed to be used with Hydraulics Bench for students to study the

characteristics of flow through both converging and diverging sections. During the

experiment, water is fed through a hose connector and students may control the flow rate of

the water by adjusting a flow regulator valve at the outlet of the test section.

AIM

This aim of the experiment is to determine Bernoullis theorem which can be applied to a

venturi meter consist of converging portion and diverging cone.

THEORY

Bernoullis principle is essentially a work energy conservation principle which states that an

ideal fluid or for situations where effects of viscosity are neglected, with no work being

performed on the fluid, the total energy is constant. This principle also states that the sum of

all forms of energy in a fluid flowing along an enclosed path (a streamline) is the same at any

two points in that path.

The pressure, speed and height (h) at two points in a steady-flowing, non-viscous,

incompressible fluid are related by the equation:

This equation is the sum of the kinetic energy, potential energy and gravitational energy at

height. If the equation was multiplied through by the volume, the density can be replaced by

mass and the pressure replaced by force times distance. As the replacement, we can see that

the difference in pressure does work which can be used to change the kinetic energy and the

potential energy of the fluid for this equation.

The continuity equation of continuity states that for an incompressible fluid flowing in a tube

of varying cross-section, the mass flow rate is the same everywhere in the tube. The equation

of continuity can be written as:

The density stay at the constant and then it is simply the flow rate (Av) that is constant. The

velocity of fluid is greater in the narrow section as we applied the continuity equation.

Bernoulli's principle also states that if a non-viscous flow along a pipe of varying cross

section. Then, an increment in the speed of the fluid simultaneously with a drop in pressure or

a decrease in the fluids potential energy and the pressure increases when the pipe opens out

and the fluid stagnate. Thus, pressure would decreases when the velocity increases.

This is expressed with the following equation:

p

v2

z h * Constant

g 2g

Where,

p

= Elevation head of the center at the cross section with respect to a datum

The sum of the pressure head (h), velocity head (hv ) and the elevation head (z) is known as

the total head (h*). The total head h* at any cross section is constant according to the

Bernoullis theorem of fluid flow through a pipe. The results will deviate from the theoretical

ones in real flow due to friction, other imperfections and the measurement uncertainties.

The centerline of all the cross sections we are considering lie on the same horizontal plane

(which we may choose as the datum, z = 0, and thus, all the z values are zeros so that the

above equation reduces to:

p

v2

h * Constant

g 2g

Venturi Meter

The venturi meter is a tool used to measure the flow through a pipeline. This apparatus

consists of a venturi tube and differential pressure gauge. The venturi tube has a converging

portion, a throat and a diverging portion as shown in the figure below. The converging

portions function is to increase the velocity of the fluid and lower its static pressure. A

pressure difference between inlet and throat is thus developed, which pressure difference is

correlated with the rate of discharge. The diverging cone serves to change the area of the

stream back to the entrance area and convert velocity head into pressure head.

CALCULATIONS

During the experiment, reading of h* , hi ,and time taken of water to be filled until 3L

are recorded.

There are a few things need to be calculated in order to determine the difference value

between ViB and ViC :

1.

2.

3.

4.

Area of each of the cross section (A, B, C, D, E and F)

Volumetric flow rate of each trial ( 1st, 2nd and 3rd)

ViC by using continuity equation

p

v2

z h * Constant

g 2g

We eliminate the pressure and z , thus we have this equation :

As for example, we calculated the ViB of the cross section A of the 1st trial experiment;

g = 9.81 m/s2

0.3132 m/s

2. The area of each cross section of the tube are calculated using this equation

= 0.000531 m2

DB = 21.6 m

DC = 16.0 m

DD = 20.0 m

DE = 22.0 m

DF = 26.0 m

3. Volumetric flow rate of each trial ( 1st, 2nd and 3rd) are calculated using equation;

=

As for example we calculated the Q of the cross section A of the 1st trial experiment;

=

= 6.944 10-5 m3/s

4. Lastly, we substituted the value of Ai and Q into the continuity equation

We calculated the difference value between ViB and ViC . For cross section A;

ViB - ViC = 0.1824 m/s

DISCUSSION

We had demonstrated the Bernoullis Theorem and from the result we had calculated

that when the diameter of the cross section smaller, there were increasing in velocities along

the distribution tube. The smallest cross section (which is cross section C) gave huge pressure

difference and had the highest velocities. The results had shown that larger pressure

difference gave out the most speed of fluid flow. Furthermore through the experiment, we had

observed as fluid flow through the venturi meter, the head is higher at the narrower tube and

vice versa. The narrower tube leads to high velocities and low pressure.

The volumetric flow rates are calculated for each trial. The speed of water was

controlled by using valve and times taken are recorded as the volumetric tank reached 3L.

Every trial had different volumetric flow rate as to manipulate the result of the velocities and

the calculated volumetric flow rates were substituted into the continuity equation to determine

the velocities. From the calculation, the highest volumetric flow rates gave the highest

velocities.

In order to determine the velocities of each cross section, two different equation were

used; by using Bernoullis Equation (ViB) and by using continuity equation (ViC). From the

calculations we observed that all of calculated ViB had highest value compared to ViC . The

continuity equation is the conservation of mass on a steady flow process through a control

volume. With uniform density of water, the velocity is equal to volumetric flow rate over

area. ViC took area of cross section into consideration, which when area increase velocity

decrease. ViC is directly proportional to area.

Whereas the Bernoullis equation is when an increment in the speed of the fluid

simultaneously with a drop in pressure and the pressure increases when the pipe opens out and

the fluid stagnate. Thus, pressure would decreases when the velocity increases. This equation

took pressure difference into consideration. As we discussed about both equations, both

equations were suitable to be used to calculate the velocities. However, there some parameters

needed to be considered like pressure difference and area.

We also had calculated the difference between ViB and ViC (ViB - ViC ), to show that

the value of ViB are greater than ViC. As we calculated, there was one negative value which

was should not happen. This may be because of parallax error during taking the reading and

air bubble trapped inside the tube.

CONCLUSION

As Bernoulli state high velocity of fluid flow result in low pressure and based on

continuity equation, smaller area result in high velocity. Thus, the result proved both equation

could be used to determine the velocity of fluid flow in manometer. Even the value is not

exactly the same, but the pattern of increasing and decreasing at the converging and diverging

portion is same. So that, as the velocity increases, the total head pressure also increases for

both convergent and divergent flow.

RECOMMENDATIONS

In order to obtain accurate results, there are a few recommendations and precautions

that should be taken during undergo the experiment. Firstly, the equipment must be drained

before starting and after the experiment, to prevent the equipment damaged. Next, make sure

there is no air bubbles trapped before and during running the experiment. The air bubbles will

affect the result of the experiment. Other than that, the experiment should be run after we

have fully understands the unit and the procedures to avoid some simple mistakes. In addition,

to get the accurate results, the eye level must be perpendicular to the reading when recording

the data to avoid parallax error, by the reading at the right meniscus. Besides that, the control

valve should be maintained at a constant flow so that each at every readings of each

manometer has the same value of pressure. Furthermore, when taking the time taken using the

stopwatch, the suction pipe has to be started simultaneously to get the accurate volumetric

flow rate. Next, the experiment should be repeated for a few times so that an average value

could be obtained. Lastly, the leakage of water in the instrument must be avoided to reduce

the error during conducting the experiment.
