Test II. APPLICATION.
1. A calibration test of a 12.5 mm circular sharp-edged orifice in the vertical side of a large
tank showed a discharge of 590 N of water in 81 sec at a head of 4.70 m. Measurement of
the jet showed that it travelled 2.35 m horizontally while dropping 30 cm. Compute the
three orifice coefficients. (p.262, dela fuente)
2. Two pipes, one circular and one square, have the same cross-sectional area. Which has the
larger hydraulic radius, and by what percentage? (circular pipe,12.8%) (p202, schaum
9.29)
3. Determine the uniform flow through a trapezoidal concrete lined canal having side slope of
3 Horizontal to 4 Vertical and bottom width of 2 m if the depth of flow is 2 m. The channel
A
is laid on a slope of 3 m per 2 kilometers. Use n = 0.013 and Manning formula, Q = A
