Experiment 2 – Bernoulli’s Theorem
Objective: 1. To record the differential pressure drop along a Venturi meter 2. Able to determine and compare the value of manometric head coefficient Cmh by theoretical and experimental. Learning Outcome: Upon the completion of experiment, student should be able to record the differential pressure drop along a venture meter. Beside that, student is also able to compare the result of the manometric head coefficient Cmh by theoretical and experimental. Given Data: Details for the venturi pipe are shown in the figure below where the diameters of each tapping section are shown in the table below.

Press the valve which is locate at the top right corner of the Bernoulli’s Theorem Apparatus to relief the trapped air and allow the water level rise to a readable level. Repeat step 3 to step 6 with 5 gpm. 4 gpm and 3 gpm. Set the flow rate to 6 gpm by turning the over flow valve.
