This tutorial questions are divided into two parts which is Part A and B.

Part A contains tutorial questions from subtopic static of fluid system and pressure measurement.

Part B contains tutorial questions from subtopic hydrostatic force on a plain surface, curved surface and movable control

gate.

Part A

1.

A vacuum gage connected to a chamber reads 24 kPa at a location where the atmospheric pressure is 92 kPa.

Determine the absolute pressure in the chamber.

2.

The absolute pressure in water at a depth of 5 m is read to be 145 kPa. Determine (a) the local atmospheric

pressure, and (b) the absolute pressure at a depth of 5 m in a liquid whose specific gravity is 0.85 at the same

location.

3.

A vacuum gage connected to a tank reads 30 kPa at a location where the barometric reading is 755 mmHg.

Determine the absolute pressure in the tank. Take the density of mercury to be 13,590 kg/m 3.

4.

A pressure gage connected to a tank reads 500 kPa at a location where the atmospheric pressure is 94 kPa.

Determine the absolute pressure in the tank.

5.

The barometer of a mountain hiker reads 930 mbars at the beginning of a hiking trip and 780 mbars at the end.

Neglecting the effect of altitude on local gravitational acceleration, determine the vertical distance climbed.

Assume an average air density of 1.20 kg/m3.

6.

Determine the pressure exerted on a diver at 30 m below the free surface of the sea. Assume a barometric

pressure of 101 kPa and a specific gravity of 1.03 for seawater.

7.

Determine the atmospheric pressure at a location where the barometric reading is 750 mmHg. Take the density

of mercury to be 13,600 kg/m3.

8.

The gage pressure in a liquid at a depth of 3 m is read to be 28 kPa. Determine the gage pressure in the same

liquid at a depth of 12 m.

9.

Pressure is often given in terms of a liquid column and is expressed as pressure head. Express the standard

atmospheric pressure in terms of (a) mercury (SG = 13.6), (b) water (SG = 1.0), and (c) glycerin (SG =1.26)

columns. Explain why we usually use mercury in manometers.

10.

The basic barometer can be used to measure the height of a building. If the barometric readings at the top and

at the bottom of a building are 730 and 755 mmHg, respectively, determine the height of the building. Assume

an average air density of 1.18 kg/m3.

11.

A gasoline line is connected to a pressure gauge through a double-U manometer, as shown in Figure 2. If the

reading of the pressure gage is 330kPa. Determine the gauge pressure of the gasoline line.

Figure 2

12.

Freshwater and seawater flowing in parallel horizontal pipelines are connected to each other by a double Utube manometer, as shown in Fig. 3. Determine the pressure difference between the two pipelines. Take the

density of seawater at that location to be 1035 kg/m3. Can the air column be ignored in the analysis?

Figure 3

13. The gage pressure of the air in the tank shown in Fig. 4 is measured to be 65 kPa. Determine the differential

height h of the mercury column.

Figure 4

14.

The pressure difference between an oil pipe and water pipe is measured by a double-fluid manometer, as

shown in Fig. 5. For the given fluid heights and specific gravities, calculate the pressure difference.

Figure 5

15.

For the inclined-tube manometer of Fig. 6 the pressure in pipe A is 4.1 kPa. The fluid in both pipes A and B is

water, and the gage fluid in the manometer has a specific gravity of 2.6. What is the pressure in pipe B

corresponding to the differential reading shown?

0.07 m

0.2 m

0.07 m

Figure 6

Part B

1. A 6-m-high, 5-m-wide rectangular plate blocks the end of a 5-m-deep freshwater channel, as shown in Fig. 1.

The plate is hinged about a horizontal axis along its upper edge through a point A and is restrained from

opening by a fixed ridge at point B. Determine the force exerted on the plate by the ridge.

5m

Figure 1

2. A triangular gate shown in Figure 2 has an angle of 65 from the bottom of a water tank. Determine the resulting

force (FR) acting on the gate and its line of action (yR).

Figure 2

3. A water trough of semi-circular cross section of radius 0.5 m consists of two symmetric parts hinged to each

other at the bottom, as shown in Fig. 2. The two parts are held together by a cable and turnbuckle placed every

3 m along the length of the trough. Calculate the tension in each cable when the trough is filled to the rim.
