1. Objective: Ø To determine the head loss. Ø To determine the head loss associated with flow of...
This experiment of the friction loss along a smooth pipe shows that there are existence of laminar and transitional flows as stated in Graph 2.0 and Graph 2.1. It is proven that the higher velocity along the smooth bore pipe, the higher is the head loss of water. As shown in Table...
Which type of friction is the largest force – static, sliding, or rolling? Which is the smallest?
II. Background Information
From our previous activities that we did in class, I know that static friction is a very large force. The force is larger than rolling, slid...
This experiment was undertaken for the study of flow in pipes and the factors that affect it in both laminar and turbulent regimes. The transitional regime between laminar and turbulent flow will also be studied...
Have you ever wondered how forces link to our life? Everything we’ve learned in science has got me thinking about it.
Forces are an essential part of our daily lives. Forces act on all objects. And we need force for everything we do, whether it’s a push, pull or twist. Force gives an ob...

Dragsters use a combination of large wide tyres or the rear and small narrow tyres on the front this combination is used for the following reasons:
<br> <br><b>The front wheels:</b>
<br>The front wheels are very narrow. This is so a minimum of air resistance or drag affects the dragster with lower...
Friction is a force resisting motion of an object when in contact with another. This resistive force is caused by the surface roughness of the contact area of the materials, molecular attraction or adhesion between materials, and deformations in the materials. The cause of friction may be...
Experiment 3: Fluid Flow Friction and Fitting Loss
To determine the pressure or head loss in different diameters pipes, joints and valves
Pipe flows belong to a broader class of flows, called internal flows, where the fluid is completely bounded by solid surfaces. In contras...
The quantity known as the friction coefficient (or ‘coefficient of friction’) has long been used in science and engineering. It is easy to define, but not easy to understand on a fundamental level. Conceptually defined as the ratio of two forces acting, respectively, perpendicular and...
Abstract—The purpose of the experiment is to study the differences of roughness, valves and geometries of pipe and how they influence friction losses.
Friction loss is the loss of energy or “head” that occurs...

Friction – It is an opposing force that acts between surfaces in contact moving with respect
to each other.
It always opposes relative motion between two surfaces.
Cause of friction - Friction is cause by the irregularities on the two surfaces in contact.
We are able to walk...
Fluid Flow In A Smooth Pipe
In this experiment, three variable flow meters are used to alter the flowrate. Changes in pressure drop due to the change in flowrate are then observed from the three pressure gauges that can measure pressure at different range and recorded. The s...

The experiment is carried out to demonstrate the relation between pressure and fluid velocity in a duct of varying cross-section by using Bernoulli’s equation and cont...
FTR: 3A1a Drag of Bluff and Streamline Bodies
In this experiment, flow structure in a wind tunnel over bluff and streamlined bodies was observed and compared. Drag is measured at different flow velocities, and curves of drag coefficient versus Reynolds number were plott...
