    * Manometers

    Manometers Manometer is an instrument which measures the pressure of a liquid or a gas while at rest. Types of Manometers (i) Simple manometer (ii) Differential manometer Simple Manometers (i) Piezometer (ii) U-tube manometer (iii) Single column manometer (Micro-manometer) Piezometer Piezometer tube is perhaps the simplest among the various pressure measuring devices and consists of a vertical […]

    * HYDROSTATIC FORCES ON HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL AND INCLINED SURFACES

    Hydrostatics Hydrostatics is the study of pressure of a fluid at rest. When the fluid is at rest, there are no shear stresses in the fluid. Thus the pressure at a point on a plane surface always acts normal to the surface. There is no effect of viscous forces. Pressure variation is only due to […]
