Mercury used as a manometer fluid what happen when the manometer tube is inverted?
When mercury is used a manometer fluid and the manometer tube is inverted it will measure the small pressure difference in liquids. This is a tool used by scientists. ...

How do you use a manometer?
A manometer is a device that is used to measure the pressure of a fluid. The U-shaped glass tube is partially filled with a liquid, usually mercury. The difference between the height of the mercury corresponds to the difference between the pressure of the fluid in the container and the atmospheric pressure. ...

Why water is used in manometer instead of mercury?
Water for all practical purposes is an uncompressible fluid. It can serve the purpose of a manometer as well as mercury. however since mercury is poisonous and dangerous, therefore water is preferred. ...

Is manometer a weather instrument?
A Manometer is a device which is used to measure atmospheric pressure. In it's simplest form it consists of a U-shaped glass tube filled with a liquid. This is often mercury due to its high density. A Manometer can be used as a weather instrument as a barometer in the case where one end of the U shaped tube is closed and has gaseous pressure (as in a vacuum). The Manometer will illustrate atmospheric pressure as the relative weight of fluid it...

Investigate the application of hydrostatics to manometer measurement of fluid flow?
According to Bernoulli's principle, the sum of static, velocity and kinetic heads at two points in a fluid flow should be equal, assuming steady state. A manometer measures static head through the height of fluid at two points. Hence, it would be apt to say that manometer is an application of hydrostatic measurement. ...

Inclined-tube manometer why are they used to measure low pressure?
the fluid level in manometer will rise through an inclined line rather than vertical line. So when ever there is slight variation in pressure the manometer (inclined) will be able read it. The pressure drop is given by P=h*density*g*sin(angle). ...
Asked in Chemistry
What is the change in a manometer with relation to a change in pressure of gas?
As the Pressure of the gas being measured increases the height of the fluid in the Manometer Tube increases. The reverse is also true. The graduations of the Manometer Tube gives you a reading of the Gas Pressure being measured. ...

Why an inverted YouTube manometer more sensitive than upright manometer?
Inverted U-tube manometer is used for measuring pressure differences in liquids. The space above the liquid in the manometer is filled with air which can be admitted or expelled through the tap on the top, in order to adjust the level of the liquid in the manometer. Equating the pressure at the level XX'(pressure at the same level in a continuous body of static fluid is equal), For the left hand side: Px = P1 - rg(h+a) For the right hand...

What is compound manometer?
Compound Manometer is an 'U' Tube manometer having 'T' joints at appropriate equal elevation in the columns of U tube manometer where the impulse lines are to be connected to measure Differential Pressure. T joint allows the use Two liquids simultaneously in the manometer. i.e. the liquid who's differential pressure is to be measured being lighter it will gauge at the top and a heavier liquid which does not dissolve with the lighter fluid will gauge at the bottom. Elevation difference in...
What model is used to explain the componets and properties of plasma membrane?
The model used to explain the components and properties of the plasma membrane is called the fluid mosaic. ...

What equation links pressure difference height density and gravitational field strength?
That sounds like you are looking for a manometer or barometer equation... Δp = ρgh where Δp is the pressure difference ρ is the density of the fluid g is the acceleration of gravity (gravitational field strength) h is the fluid height - or the difference in fluid heights if you are using a manometer. ...

What is the instrument used to determine air pressure is called?
manometer Atmospheric air pressure is measured with a barometer. A manometer is a pressure guage used to to measure comparative pressures of any gases. ...
