### Venturimeter

Venturimeter is an instrument used to measure the discharge of liquid flowing in a pipe. It consists of three parts, i.e the converging cone, the throat and the diverging cone. The length of the divergent cone is made about three to four times convergent cone in order to avoid tendency of breaking away the stream of liquid and to minimise frictional losses. It may be noted that

(a) The velocity of liquid at the throat is higher than that of inlet.

(b) The pressure of liquid at the throat is lower than that of inlet.

(c) The velocity and pressure of liquid flowing through the divergent portion decreases.

The discharge through a venturimeter is given by

where
Cd = Coefficient of discharge,
a1 = Area at inlet,
a2 = Area at throat, and

1. i venturimeter flow takes place at atm or gauge or absloute pressure ?

1. Atmospheric pressure

2. Atmospheric pressure

2. why does pressure decreases while velocity decreases in the divergent section.this should violate the energy conservation law.

### Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find mo
