Please show all the work.

Water is flowing upward in the vertical duct as shown (in the figure in the attachment). The velocity at the inlet (station 1) is 100 ft/s, and the area ratio between station 1 and 2 is 0.6 (A2/A1 = 0.6). Two pressure taps, 10 ft apart, are connected to a differential manometer, as shown. The specific gravity of the manometer fluid is 4.0. Find the deflection delta_h of the manometer.

According to equation of continuity the product of area of cross-section and velocity at all points in a tube remains same (if the fluid is incompressible). Thus velocity at point 2 is given by

A2 ...

Solution Summary

Water is flowing in a vertical duct, the pressure difference and thus the deflection of liquid in a manometer attached is determined.
