A U tube open at both ends is partially filled with water. Oil having a density of 750 kg/cubic meter is then poured into the right arm and forms a column L = 5.00 cm high. (a) Determine the difference h in the heights of the two liquid surfaces. The right arm is then shielded from any air motion while air is blown across the top of the left arm until the surfaces of the two liquids are at the same height. (b) Determine the speed of the air being blown across the left arm. Take the density of air as 1.29 kg/cubic meter.

I'm not exactly sure how to set this up. I'm not sure if there is a bouyant force on the oil. Can you help me?

a.)
Oil: (right arm)
h1 = 5.00 cm = 0.05 m (from top free surface of the oil)
d1 = 750 kg/m^3

Water: (left arm)
d2 = 1000 kg/m^3
h2 = ? (from free top surface of water, where it is in level with oil in the other ...

Solution Summary

The solution involves calculations involving a U tube open at both sides and filled with water. It includes calculations for the different in heights of the two liquid surfaces an the speed of air blowing past one of the arms

The acceleration of a marble in a certain fluid is proportional to the speed of the marble squared and is given in SI units) by a=-3.00 v^2 for v greater than 0. If the marble enters this fluid with a speed of 1.20 m/s, how long will it take before the marble's speed is reduced to half of its initial value?

Consider an object with height h, mass M, and uniform cross sectional area A floating upright in a liquid with density p.
a.) Calculate the vertical distance from the surface of the liquid to the bottom of the floating object at equilibrium.
b.) A downward force of magnitude F is applied to the top of the object. At the

Perform a 2-fold serial dilution using 4 tubes containing 1ml of NB each and a 20ml broth culture of Bacillus subtilis; use the same B. subtilis culture and perform a 2-fold serial dilution using 4 tubes containing 2ml of NB each; repeat in a similar fashion using 4 tubes containing 0.5ml each.

In the background information, the table showed you that a mixture can be made between a minimum of two solids (SS), two liquids (LL), two gases (GG), gas and liquid(GL), solid and gas (GS), solid and liquid (SL). You will make mixtures that have some of the components mentioned above.
