2 Fluid Pressure Fluid pressure is the normal force exerted by the fluid per unit area at some location within the fluid Fluid pressure has the units: N/m 2 2 Pascal 1 Pa = 1 N/m 2 psi pound-force per square inch = 6, Pa Bar 1 bar = 10 5 Pa = 100 Kpa Atmosphere 1 atm = 101,325 Pa = bars 1 kgf/cm 2 = N/m 2 psia (pounds-force per square inch absolute) gauge pressure plus local atmospheric pressure

3 Absolute pressure is the actual pressure at a given position Absolute Pressure However, the absolute pressure is measured relative to absolute zero pressure This is why most pressuremeasuring devices (called gages) read zero in the atmosphere 3

4 4 Gage and Vacuum Pressures When the pressure gages read a pressure value this value would be the difference between the absolute pressure and the local atmospheric pressure This difference is called gage pressure (P gage ) P gage = P abs P atm If Pgage is negative then it is called vacuum pressure P vac = P atm - P abs

5 5 Gage and Vacuum Pressures

6 6 The gage used to measure the air pressure in an automobile tire reads the gage pressure Gage Pressure Therefore, the common reading of 32 psi indicates a pressure of 32 psi above the atmospheric pressure At a location where the atmospheric pressure is 14.3 psi, for example, the absolute pressure in the tire is = 46.3 psi

7 7 Example A vacuum gage connected to a chamber reads 5.8 psi at a location where the atmospheric pressure is 14.5 psi Determine the absolute pressure in the chamber We know that P abs = P atm P vac = = 8.7 psi

8 8 Pressure at a Point Consider a small wedgeshaped fluid element of unit length (into the page) in equilibrium The mean pressures at the three surfaces are P n, P x, and P z, and the force acting on a surface is the product of mean pressure and the surface area

9 9 Pressure at a Point By writing the equation of equilibrium for the x direction, we obtain: For the z direction, we obtain: Now, when we divide this equation by the product ΔlΔycosα and the fluid element shrinks to a point (Δl 0)m the last term disappears. Thus we have: Ultimately, this implies that : Since α is arbitrary and Pn is independent of α, we conclude that the pressure at a point in a static fluid acts with the same magnitude in all directions:

10 10 Variation of Pressure with Depth To obtain a relation for the variation of pressure with depth, consider the element shown in the figure with a length of Δl, ΔA in cross-sectional area, and inclined at angle α with the horizontal A force balance in the vertical z-direction gives: Upon simplification: However, if we let the length approach zero, then Δp/Δl=dp/dl. Note also that sin α = dz/dl. Therefore:

11 Variation of Pressure with Depth This is the basic equation for hydrostatic pressure variation with elevation It implies that pressure changes with the vertical distance but remains constant in the other directions The pressure changes inversely with elevation. If one travels upward in the fluid (positive z direction), the pressure decreases; and if one goes downward (negative z), the pressure increases 11 Of course, a pressure increase is exactly what a diver experiences when descending in a lake or pool

12 Variation of Pressure with Depth If the specific weight of the fluid is uniform then it is constant. Thus the previous equation (dp/dz = -γ) becomes after integration: The sum of the terms p/γ and z is called the piezometric head. This is constant throughout an incompressible static fluid 12 One can easily relate the piezometric head at one point to that of another point in the fluid as in the following:

13 13 Variation of Pressure with Depth Thus, the pressure difference between two points in a constant density fluid is proportional to the vertical distance Δz between the points and the density ρ of the fluid In other words, pressure in a fluid increases linearly with depth as we go down and vice versa

14 14 Variation of Pressure with Depth A pressure difference of 10 psi can be specified in terms of pressure head as 23.1 ft of water (γ = 62.4 lb/ft 3 ), or 518 mm of Hg (γ = 133 kn/m 3 ) As illustrated by the figure, a ft-tall column of water with a crosssectional area of 1 in. 2 weighs 10 lb

15 15 Variation of Pressure with Depth If we take point 1 to be at the free surface of a liquid open to the atmosphere where the pressure is the atmospheric pressure (P atm ) then the pressure at a depth h from the free surface becomes: P = P atm + ρgh or P gage = ρgh

16 Example Determine the pressure in psi at a depth of 20 ft below the free surface of a body of water if γ = 62.4 lb/ft 3 P = γ h = = 1,248 lb/ft 2 P = 1,248/144 = 8.67 psi 16

17 17 Example Determine the pressure at a depth of 9 m in oil of specific gravity 0.75 P = γ h = = 66.1 kpa

18 18 Example What depth of oil of specific gravity 0.75 will produce a pressure of 40 psi? What depth of water?

19 19 Example Find the pressure at the bottom of a tank containing glycerin under pressure

20 20 Example What is the water pressure at a depth of 35 ft in the tank shown?

21 21 Example Oil with a specific gravity of 0.80 forms a layer 0.90 m deep in an open tank that is otherwise filled with water. The total depth of water and oil is 3 m. What is the gage pressure at the bottom of the tank?

22 22 Example Because of a leak in a buried gasoline storage tank, water has seeped in to the depth shown in the figure. The specific gravity of the gasoline is 0.68 Determine the pressure at the gasoline water interface and at the bottom of the tank

23 23 Example

24 24 Example

25 25 Pressure Transmission In a closed system, a pressure change produced at one point in the system will be transmitted throughout the entire system This phenomenon of pressure transmission, along with the ease with which fluids can be moved, has led to the widespread development of hydraulic controls for operating equipment such as hydraulic presses

26 26 Pressure Transmission In the figure the air pressure from a compressor establishes the pressure in the oil system, which in turn acts against the piston in the lift It can be seen that if a pressure of 600 kn/m 2, for example, acts on the 25-cm diameter piston, then a force equal to p A, or 29.5 kn, will be exerted on the piston To handle larger or smaller loads it is necessary only to increase or decrease the pressure

27 27 Example A hydraulic jack has the dimensions shown. If one exerts a force F of 100 N on the handle of the jack, what load, F 2, can the jack support? Neglect lifter weight

28 28 Example

29 29 Example In the figure the areas of the plunger A and cylinder B are 6.00 and 600 in 2, respectively, and the weight of B is 9000 lb. The vessel and the connecting passages are filled with oil of specific gravity What force F is required for equilibrium, neglecting the weight of A?

30 30 Example

31 31 Pressure Transmission The pressure is the same at all points on a horizontal plane in a given fluid Note that the pressures at points A, B, C, D, F. F, and C are the same since they are at the same depth, and they are interconnected by the same static fluid However, the pressures at points H and I are not the same since these two points cannot be interconnected by the same fluid although they are at the same depth

32 32 Pressure Transmission

33 Measurement of Pressure Barometer Absolute atmospheric pressure is measured by a device called barometer and thus the atmospheric pressure is often referred to as the barometric pressure If we immerse the open end of a tube in a liquid that is open to the atmosphere (atmospheric pressure), and if we exhaust air from the tube, the liquid will rise in the tube If the tube is long enough and if we have removed all the air, the only pressure on the surface of the liquid in the tube will be that of its own vapor pressure, and the liquid will have reached its maximum possible height 33

34 34 Measurement of Pressure Barometer From the concepts developed earlier, we see that the pressure at 0 within the tube and at a on the surface of the liquid outside the tube must be the same; that is: P 0 = P a = P atm In addition, we have: P 0 = γy + P vapor or P atm = γy + P vapor If we neglect the vapor pressure, then we would have: P atm = γy

35 35 Measurement of Pressure Barometer The liquid used in barometers is usually mercury because: its density is sufficiently great to enable a reasonably short tube to be used Its vapor pressure is negligibly small at ordinary temperatures Standard sea-level atmospheric pressure in different ways are: in Hg = 760 mm Hg ft of water = m of water

36 36 Example Determine the atmospheric pressure at a location where the barometric reading is 740 mm Hg and the gravitational acceleration is g = 9.81 m/s 2. assume that the temperature of mercury to be 10 C at which the density is 13,570 kg/m 3 We know that: P atm = γy + P vapor Neglecting the vapor pressure we have: P atm = γy = ρgh = 13, = Pa

37 Example What would be the reading on a barometer containing carbon tetrachloride at 68 F at a time when the atmospheric pressure was equivalent to in Hg? For carbon tetrachloride at 68 F we have: ρ = 3.08 slugs/ft 3 and P vapor = 1.9 psia Convert P atm to the units of psia P atm = / = psia Y = (P atm P vapor )/ρg = ( )/( ) = ft of carbon tetrachloride 37

38 38 Measurement of Pressure Piezometer Measuring pressure involves the use of devices that use liquid columns. These measuring devices are called manometers The simplest type of manometer, called a piezometer tube, consists of a vertical tube, open at the top, and attached to the container in which the pressure is desired

39 39 Measurement of Pressure Piezometer Because manometers involve columns of fluids at rest, the fundamental equation describing their use is P = γh + P 0 which gives the pressure at any elevation in terms of the vertical distance h between P and P 0 Application of this equation to the piezometer tube indicates that the pressure P A can be determined by a measurement of h 1 through the relationship P A = γ 1 h 1 where γ 1 is the specific weight of the liquid in the container Since the tube is open at the top, the pressure P 0 can be set equal to zero (we are now using gage pressure for P A ) Because point (1) and point A within the container are at the same elevation then P A = P 1

40 40 Measurement of Pressure U-Tube Manometer Another type of manometer is used and consists of a tube formed into the shape of a U To find the pressure PA in terms of the various column heights, we start at one end of the system and work our way around to the other end, simply utilizing equation: P 1 = γh + P 2

41 41 Measurement of Pressure U-Tube Manometer Figure 1. The liquid is at the same height in each leg and pressure is equal at both ends Figure 2. When positive pressure is applied to one leg, the liquid is forced down in that leg and up in the other. The difference in height, "h," which is the sum of the readings above and below zero, indicates the pressure Figure 3. When a vacuum is applied to one leg, the liquid rises in that leg and falls in the other. The difference in height, "h," indicates the amount of vacuum

42 Measurement of Pressure U-Tube Manometer Thus, we will start at point A and work around to the open end The pressure at points A and (1) are the same As we move from point (1) to (2) the pressure will increase by y 1 h 1 The pressure at point (2) is equal to the pressure at point (3), since the pressures at equal elevations in a continuous mass of fluid at rest must be the same 42

43 43 Measurement of Pressure U-Tube Manometer With the pressure at point (3) specified we now move to the open end where the pressure is zero As we move vertically upward the pressure decreases by an amount y 2 h 2 As such we can write P A + γ 1 h 1 γ 2 h 2 = 0 And the pressure PA can be written as column heights as: P A = γ 2 h 2 γ 1 h 1

44 44 Measurement of Pressure U-Tube Manometer

45 45 Example A closed tank contains compressed air and oil (SG oil = 0.90). A U-tube manometer using mercury (SG Hg = 13.6) is connected to the tank. The column heights are h 1 = 36 in., h 2 = 6 in., and h 3 = 9 in Determine the pressure reading (in psi) of the gage

46 46 Example Following the general procedure of starting at one end of the manometer system and working around to the other, we will start at the air oil interface in the tank and proceed to the open end where the pressure is zero. The pressure at level (1) is: This pressure is equal to the pressure at level (2), as these two points are at the same elevation in a homogeneous fluid at rest. As we move from level (2) to the open end, the pressure must decrease by Y Hg h 3, and at the open end the pressure is zero. Thus, the manometer equation can be expressed as:

47 47 Example Assume that the gage pressure remains at 3.06 psi, but the manometer is altered so that it contains only oil. That is, the mercury is replaced by oil. A simple calculation shows that in this case the vertical oil-filled tube would need to be h 3 = 11.3 ft tall, rather than the original h 3 = 9 in. There is an obvious advantage of using a heavy fluid such as mercury in manometers

48 48 Measurement of Pressure Differential Manometers The U-tube manometer is also widely used to measure the difference in pressure between two containers or two points in a given system Consider a manometer connected between containers A and B as is shown in the figure. The difference in pressure between A and B can be found by again starting at one end and working around to the other end

49 Measurement of Pressure Differential Manometers For example, at A the pressure is P A, which is equal to P 1, and as we move to point (2) the pressure increases by γ 1 h 1 The pressure at P 2 is equal to P 3, and as we move upward to point (4) the pressure decreases by γ 2 h 2 Similarly, as we continue to move upward from point (4) to (5) the pressure decreases by γ 3 h 3 Finally, P 5 = P B, as they are at equal elevations. Thus, 49 P A + γ 1 h 1 γ 2 h 2 γ 2 h 2 = P B P A P B =γ 2 h 2 + γ 2 h 2 γ 1 h 1 The pressure difference

50 50 Example The nozzle creates a pressure drop, P A P B, along the pipe. The pressure drop is measured with a differential U-tube manometer of the type illustrated (a) Determine an equation for P A P B in terms of the specific weight of the flowing fluid, γ 1, the specific weight of the gage fluid, γ 2 and the various heights indicated

51 51 Example If we start at point A and move vertically upward to level (1), the pressure will decrease by γ 1 h 1 and will be equal to the pressure at (2) and at (3). We can now move from (3) to (4) where the pressure has been further reduced by γ 2 h 2 The pressures at levels (4) and (5) are equal, and as we move from (5) to B the pressure will increase by γ 1 (h 1 + h 2 ). Thus, in equation form P A γ 1 h 1 γ 2 h 2 + γ 1 (h 1 + h 2 ) = P B P A P B =h 2 (γ 2 γ 1 ) It is to be noted that the only column height of importance is the differential reading, h 2

52 52 Measurement of Pressure Inclined Manometers To measure small pressure changes, a manometer of the type shown in the figure is frequently used One leg of the manometer is inclined at an angle θ and the differential reading l 2 is measured along the inclined tube. The difference in pressure P A P B can be expressed as: P A + γ 1 h 1 γ 2 l 2 sin θ γ 3 h 3 = P B P A P B = γ 2 l 2 sin θ + γ 3 h 3 γ 1 h 1 where it is to be noted the pressure difference between points (1) and (2) is due to the vertical distance between the points, which can be expressed as l 2 sin θ Thus, for relatively small angles the differential reading along the inclined tube can be made large even for small pressure differences

53 53 Example For the open tank, with piezometers attached on the side, containing two different immiscible liquids as shown in the figure, find: (a) The elevation of the liquid surface in piezometer A (b)the elevation of the liquid surface in piezometer B (c) The total pressure at the bottom of the tank

54 Example (a) Liquid A will simply rise in piezometer A to the same elevation as liquid A in the tank (i.e., to elevation 2 m) (b) Liquid B will rise in piezometer B to elevation 0.3 m (as a result of the pressure exerted by liquid B) plus an additional amount, h A, as a result of the overlying pressure of liquid A, P A P A = γh = ( )(1.7) = kpa h A = p/ γ = 11.98/( ) = m Liquid B will rise in piezometer B to elevation = m (c) Pressure at bottom = ( )(1.7) + ( )(0.3) = 18.9 kpa 54

55 55 Example Determine the pressure at A in psi gage due to the deflection of the mercury, SG = in the U-tube gage shown in the figure Pressure head at B = pressure head at C P A /γ ft water = ft water Solving, P A / γ = 34.0 ft water, and P A = ( )/144 = 14.7 psi

56 Example A manometer is attached to a tank containing three different fluids, as shown in the figure. Find the difference in elevation of the mercury column in the manometer (for instance find the value of y in the figure) 56 pressure at A = pressure at B 30 + ( )(3) + (9.79)(3.00) = ( )(y) Y = m

57 57 Example Oil of specific gravity flows through the nozzle shown in the figure and deflects the mercury in the U-tube gage. Determine the value of h if the pressure at A is 20.0 psi

58 58 Example

59 59 Example For a gage pressure at A of kpa, find the specific gravity of the gage liquid B in the figure

60 60 Example

61 61 Example For a gage reading at A of 2.50 psi, determine: (a) the elevations of the liquids in the open piezometer columns E, F, and G (b) the deflection of the mercury in the U-tube gage i

62 62 Example Since the unit weight of the air (about 0.08 lb/ft 3 ) is very small compared with that of the liquids, the pressure at elevation 49 may be considered to be psi without introducing significant error in the calculations
