PURPOSE: To illustrate the venturi effect in a water.
DESCRIPTION: The apparatus consists of a water reservoir and a venturi tube with manometers. The pressure is measured at three points along the tube. Hold reservoir and end of tube high enough that the water will not flow to show that the level is the same in all the manometers under static conditions.
SUGGESTIONS: This one is more effective than its counterpart, F5-23: VENTURI TUBE WITH WATER - GAUGES, because it is more visual and easier to use.
REFERENCES: (PIRA unavailable.)
EQUIPMENT: Venturi tube apparatus with manometers.
SETUP TIME: 10 min.
