EXPERIMENT 7 : ORIFICE COEFFICIENT MEASUREMENT
INTRODUCTION
From application of Bernoulli’s equation (conservation of mechanical energy for a steady, incompressible, frictionless flow) : ideal orifice outflow velocity at the jet vena contracta (narrowest diameter) is:
vi= 2gh
Where h is the height of fluid above the orifice. The actual flow rate of the jet is defined as:
Qt= Acv
Where Ac is the cross-sectional area of the vena contracta, given by:
Ac= CcAo
Where Ao is the area of orifice and Cc is the coefficient of area contraction and, therefore, Cc<1, hence:
Qt = CcAoCv2gh
The product CcCv is called the discharge coefficient, Cd, so finally:
Qt = CdAo2gh
If Cd is assumed to ...view middle of the document...

The tank is filled to overflow level and the flow control valve is closed.
9. Start a stop watch when the level reaches the first convenient scale mark (noted as h1). Take a reading of the head (h2) at 20 seconds intervals.
