## Absolute Pressure at 200 mm Below the Surface of Liquid Mercury

**Problem**

Determine the absolute pressure in a vessel of mercury at a point 200 mm below its surface.

A. 126 kPa | C. 128 kPa |

B. 130 kPa | D. 132 kPa |

**Problem 18**

Figure 4-09 shows a siphon discharging oil (sp gr 0.90). The siphon is composed of 3-in. pipe from A to B followed by 4-in. pipe from B to the open discharge at C. The head losses are from 1 to 2, 1.1 ft; from 2 to 3, 0.7 ft; from 3 to 4, 2.5 ft. Compute the discharge, and make table of heads at point 1, 2, 3, and 4.

## Problem 17 - Bernoulli's Energy Theorem

**Problem 17**

In Figure 4-08 is shown a siphon discharging water from reservoir A into the air at B. Distance 'a' is 1.8 m, 'b' is 6 m, and the diameter is 150 mm throughout. If there is a frictional loss of 1.5 m between A and the summit, and 1.5 m between the summit and B, what is the absolute pressure at the summit in kiloPascal? Also determine the rate of discharge in cubic meter per second and in gallons per minute.
