A U-Tube manometer is used to measure
the pressure of water in a pipe line, which is in excess of atmospheric
pressure. The right limb of the manometer contains water and mercury is in the
left limb. Determine the pressure of water in the main line, if the difference
in level of mercury in the limbs U. U tube is 10 cm and the free surface of
mercury is in level with over the centre of the pipe. If the pressure of water
in pipe line is reduced to 9810 N/m^{2}, Calculate the new difference
in the level of mercury. Sketch the arrangement in both cases.
Given,
Difference

Let

The point B and C lie on the same horizontal line.
Hence pressure at B should be equal to pressure at C.
But
pressure at B = Pressure at A and Pressure due to 10 cm (or) 0.1m of water.

of stream function shows the possible
case of flow and if
it satisfies Laplace equation, then the
