Venturi meter - Similitude problem

A model of a venturi meter has linear dimensions one-fifth those of the prototype. The prototype operates on water at 20 degrees Celsius, and the model on water at 95 degrees Celsius. For a throat diameter of 600 mm and a velocity at the throat of 6 m/s in the prototype, what discharge is needed through the model for similitude?

Solution Summary

The solution provides step-by-step and detailed explanations to calculate the discharge through the model for the similtude.
