  13. Piezometer Simple u-tube manometer
  14. Single column manometer Single vertical column Single inclined column
  15. Piezometer The rise of liquid ‘h’ gives the pressure at that point i.e. p = .g.h 
  16. U-Tube Manometer 1 2 Gauge pressure Vaccum pressure p
  17. For measuring Gauge pressure Pressure in the left limb = p + 1.g.h1 Pressure in the right limb = 2.g.h2 For the balance, Pressure in the left limb = Pressure in the right limb p + 1.g.h1 = 2.g.h2 p = (2.g.h2 - 1.g.h1) For measuring Vacuum pressure Pressure in the left limb = p + 1.g.h1 + 2.g.h2 Pressure in the right limb = 0 For the balance, Pressure in the left limb = Pressure in the right limb p + 1.g.h1+ 2.g.h2 = 0 p = - (2.g.h2 + 1.g.h1)
  18. Single Column Manometer  Vertical Single Column Manometer  Inclined single column Manometer  It is a modified form of u-tube manometer  A reservoir of large cross sectional area is connected to left limb  Any variation in pressure, change in the liquid level in the reservoir is neglected.  hence the pressure is measured by the level in the right limb
  19. Vertical Single column Manometer p, 1 2 A a Fall of heavy liquid in the reservoir = Rise of heavy liquid in right limb
  20. Volume of liquid Fall = Volume of liquid rise h x A = h2 x a h = ( h2 x a )/A Pressure in the left limb = p + 1.g. (h +h1) Pressure in the right limb = 2.g.(h +h2) Therefore, P left = P right p + 1.g. (h +h1) = 2.g.(h +h2) p = 2.g.(h +h2) - 1.g. (h +h1) p = (h2 x a)/A . [2.g - 1.g] + 2.g.h2 - 1.g.h1 As the ratio a /A is small hence neglected, then p = 2.g.h2 - 1.g.h1
  21. Inclined Single column Manometer More sensitive 1 2 A a
  22. p = 2.g.L.sin - 1.g.h1 h2 = L. Sin Differential Manometers  U-tube differential Manometers  Inverted U-tube differential Manometers
  23. U-tube differential Manometers Different liquids at different levels 1 2 3
  24. Pressure in the left limb = pA + 1.g.(h+x) Pressure in the right limb = pB + 2.g.y + 3. g.h Pressure in the left limb = pressure in the right limb pA + 1.g.(h+x) = pB + 2.g.y + 3. g.h Therefore, pA-pB = g.h (3 - 1) + 2.g.y - 1.g.x
  25. At same level contains same liquid 1 2
  26. Pressure in the left limb = pA + 1.g.(h+x) Pressure in the right limb = pB + 1.g.x + 2. g.h Pressure in the left limb = pressure in the right limb pA + 1.g.(h+x) = pB + 1.g.x + 2. g.h Therefore, pA-pB = g.h.(2 - 1)
  27. Inverted U-tube differential Manometers 1 2 3 Light liquid
  28. Pressure in the left limb = pA - 1.g.h1 Pressure in the right limb = pB - 2.g.h2- 3.g.h Since, pressure in left limb = pressure in right limb pA - 1.g.h1 = pB - 2.g.h2- 3.g.h pA –pB = 1.g.h1 - 2.g.h2- 3.g.h
