Manometer with non linear height change.

  1. Apr 20, 2015 #1
    I am trying to establish a mathematical relationship between heights h1 and h2 (please refer to figure attached) for a manometer whose RHS channel is the shape of a triangle (defined by a base length and the angle theta). I want to be able to calculate the heights h1 and h2 for a given change to the pressure p1. Any help or a point in the right direction would be much appreciated.


    ps. This is not an practice question, I am hoping to do this with multiple manometer with various geometries.

    here is my attempt to get h1 or h2 interms of Δh. Anyone know a cleaner way in doing so?
