Lecture #7 - continued

• Read section 2.5, MYO, 3rd edition on absolute/gage pressure/textbook
• convention, concept of pressure head on page 46
• Manometry - Demo

Assumptions: Static fluid, gravity is the only

body force, z axis vertical

• Read 2.6.3 and 2.7, MYO, 3rd edition for other pressure measuring devices

Fluid Mechanics: Mahalingam

Lecture #7 - continued
• Hydrostatic forces on submerged surfaces

- Begin by considering forces on planar surfaces

- Basic ideas are the same when considering curved surfaces

• Planar surface analysis

Goal

• To find magnitude of force on a planar surface submerged in a
• fluid
• To find location of net force or Center of Pressure
