What Differential Pressure Transmitters Do?

Differential pressure transmitters were originally designed for use in pipes to measure pressure before and after the fluid encounters a filter, pump, or another interruption in flow. Standard differential pressure transmitters come with two process connections arranged side by side to measure the drop in pressure (d) between the higher and lower points (H and L, respectively, in Figure 1). Classic differential pressure transmitters can also measure flow rates. It wasn’t long before people realized that differential pressure measurements could be used to determine liquid level as well.

What is half of a cup?

That would be a quarter of a cup or 1/4 of a cup

How many gallons of fluid are in a cylindrical fuel tank that is 7 feet diameter 20 feet long?

There will be about 5757 US gallons in a full tank of this size. A cylinder's volume is the area of the base times its height. The area of the base is pi times the square of the radius of that base. A radius is half a diameter. Half of 7 feet is 3 1/2 feet. If we take pi times the square of that, we'll get about 38.48 square feet. Multiply that by the 20 foot length and you'll get about 769.6 cubic feet. There are about 7.5 gallons in a cubic foot of water. Multiply the 769.6 feet3 (the volume) by 7.5 gallons/foot3 and there's the (approximately) 5757 gallons (US) in that tank.

What is mean by scalar point function?

Def. Scalar function. A scalar function is a function that assigns a real number (i.e. a scalar) to a set of real variables. Its general form isu = u(x1, x2, ... , xn)where x1, x2, ... , xn are real numbers.ORDef. Scalar point function. A scalar point function is a function that assigns a real number (i.e. a scalar) to each point of some region of space. If to each point (x, y, z) of a region R in space there is assigned a real number u = Φ(x, y, z), then Φ is called a scalar point function. Examples. 1. The temperature distribution within some body at a particular point in time. 2. The density distribution within some fluid at a particular point in time

What is the greatest possible error for a measurement of 25 fluid ounces?

The greatest possible error will be ½ × 25 fl oz = 12½ fl oz = 12.5 fl oz when your measuring device is only marked with in 25 fl oz graduations and the reading is taken to the nearest graduation mark: every reading up to half way between two graduations will round down to the lower of the two, and every reading half and above will round up to the higher of the two. However, usually reading to a whole number will assume rounding to the nearest whole number and so the usual error will be ±½, ie an error of 0.5 fl oz.

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.

The collision of the molecules of a fluid inside the surface of their container best describes?

The collision of the molecules of a fluid inside the surface of their container best describes pressure.

Whose principal states when force is applied to confined fluid an increase in pressure is transmitted equally to all parts of the fluid?

ANSWER:FLUID. "What happens when you squeeze a container filled with water? If the container is closed, the water has nowhere to go. As a result, the pressure in the water increases by the same amount everywhere in the container-- not just where you squeeze or near the top of the container. When a force is applied to a confined fluid, an increase in pressure is transmitted equally to all parts of the fluid. This is called the Pascal's Principal."-- Science Level Green, Glencoe Science

If the air pressure inside a container were greater than the fluid pressure outside the container what would happen?

Okay i think i might know but i'm not sure but i think this can never happen because if it did the atmospheric pressure would crush us. our fluids in our bodies exert pressure on the atmospheric pressure(the same amount) and pretty much neutralize the effect!

Why is the pressure at the bottom of an object in fluid greater than the pressure at the top of the object?

because of the height, as you go down further in depth the greater the pressure. imagine when you at a greater depth the greater amount of fluid you have to endure. the pressure would be the same everywhere at the same depth in fluid but the force on the object would depend on the area of the object.

How does the pressure at the bottom of a container depends on the container shape and the fluid height?

Why would a denser fluid exert stronger pressure on an object in the fluid than a less dense fluid would?

A denser fluid would exert stronger pressure on an object in the fluid than a less dense fluid would because of the pressure differences. A denser fluid would have a greater pressure difference, therefore greater buoyancy, and exerting stronger pressure on the object.

When you exert force on a fluid in a closed container does the pressure increase decrease or remain constant?

The pressure increases.

The pressure a fluid in a closed container exerts can be increased by thrust?

Yes it can because of the movement...

What causes fluid pressure?

A= actually its fluid pressure and fluid pressure is any kind of fluid(gas,liquid,air,are all fluid. Fluid Pressure is any fluid that is exerted on the surface, to calculate fluid pressure divide the force by the area over which it is applied.

On my 1998 ZX2 there is a fluid container on the front just next to the radiator cap on the passengers side is this the clutch fluid if not what is it and where do i fill up the clutch fluid?

The clutch fluid and the brake fluid can both be filled in the brake fluid reservoir.

What force is exerted on an object by a fluid when the fluid is not moving?

A static fluid will exert hydrostatic pressure on its container. Hydrostatic pressure is equal to the density ρ of the fluid multiplied by gravity g and the depth h:P = ρ g h
