The above is a link to the problem - Question #3.

A glass tube has several different cross-sectional areas with the values indicated in the figure. A piston at the left end of the tube exerts pressure so that the mercury within the tube flows from the right end with a speed of 8.0 m/s. Three points within the tube are labeled A, B, and C.

Point A 12cm^2

Point B 5.6cm^2

Point C 6.0cm^2

NB: The drawing is not to scale.

Atmospheric pressure is 1.01×105 m/s2; and the density of mercury is 13 600 kg/m3.

Determine the height h of mercury in the manometer with the evacuated upper end.

(a) 136 mm (b) 269 mm (c) 276 mm (d) 366 mm (e) 371 mm

I really don't know where to start with this question, so any help would be appreciated here.

Atmospheric pressure is 1.01×105 m/s2

density of mercury is 13 600 kg/m3

Pressure = force / area, p = F/A

As above, not really sure where to start with this as I missed our week of learning about fluid dynamics and am now playing greaaat catch up. Would greatly appreciate the help!

The above is a link to the problem - Question #3.

**1. Homework Statement**A glass tube has several different cross-sectional areas with the values indicated in the figure. A piston at the left end of the tube exerts pressure so that the mercury within the tube flows from the right end with a speed of 8.0 m/s. Three points within the tube are labeled A, B, and C.

Point A 12cm^2

Point B 5.6cm^2

Point C 6.0cm^2

NB: The drawing is not to scale.

Atmospheric pressure is 1.01×105 m/s2; and the density of mercury is 13 600 kg/m3.

Determine the height h of mercury in the manometer with the evacuated upper end.

(a) 136 mm (b) 269 mm (c) 276 mm (d) 366 mm (e) 371 mm

**2. Homework Equations**I really don't know where to start with this question, so any help would be appreciated here.

Atmospheric pressure is 1.01×105 m/s2

density of mercury is 13 600 kg/m3

Pressure = force / area, p = F/A

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**As above, not really sure where to start with this as I missed our week of learning about fluid dynamics and am now playing greaaat catch up. Would greatly appreciate the help!
