enturi Flow Meter
(19 points possible)

A Venturi flow meter is used to measure the the flow velocity of a water main. The water main has a diameter of 40.0 cm, and the constriction has a diameter of 10.0 cm. The two vertical pipes are open at the top, and the difference in water level between them is 2.0 m. Find the velocity, (in m/s), and the volumetric flow rate, (in m /s), of the water in the main.
