The objective of this experiment is to be demonstrate and evaluate the Bernoulli’s Principle of
incompressible fluid flows in pressurized closed conduits system. And the application in determining
velocity profile for a venture nozzle.

Intended Learning Outcome(ILOs):

At the end of the meeting the student shall be able to:
a.) Discuss the Bernoulli’s Principle of incompressible fluid flows.
b.) Interpret the gathered data with regards to the Bernoulli’s Principle. c.)
Evaluate the flow rate coefficient for the given venture nozzle.

The HM 150.07 is used to investigate the Bernoulli’s law. The measurement object is a
Venturi nozzle with six pressure measurement points. The six static pressures are displayed on a
board with six water pressure gauges.
The overall pressure can also be measured at various locations in the Venturi Nozzle and
indicated on a second water pressure gauge. Measurement is by way of a probe which can be moved
axially with respect to the venture nozzle. The probe is sealed by way of a compression gland. Water
is supplied either from the HM 150 Fluid Mechanics Basic Module or from the laboratory mains.

1 unit Stopwatch

Arrange the experimentation set-up on the HM 150 such that the discharge routes the water into the

• Make hose connection between HM 150 and HM 150.07

• Open discharge of HM 150
• Set cap nut (1) of probe compression gland such that slight resistance is felt on moving
• Open inlet and outlet valves
• Switch on pump and slowly open main cock of HM 150
• Open vent valves (2) on water pressure gauges
• Carefully close outlet valve until pressure gauges are flushed
• By simultaneously setting inlet and outlet valve, regulate water level in pressure gauges
such that neither upper nor lower range limit (UL, LL) is overshot or undershot
• Record pressures at all measurement points. Then move overall pressure probe to
corresponding measurement level and note down overall pressure
• Determine volumetric flow rate. To do so, use stopwatch to establish time t required for
raising the level in the tank of the HM 150 from 20l to 30l

We observed that when fluids moves from a region of higher pressure to lower pressure, the
velocity of the fluid increases. There are a little bit differences on the speed of the flow and the pressure
when we use Bernoulli‟s equation and Continuity equation to calculate velocity.


Bernoulli’s equation holds that for fluids in an ideal state, pressure and density are inversely related
such that a slow-moving fluid exerts more pressure than fast-moving fluid. Whereas in this experiment the
fluid was water in which we measured its flow from 20 to 30 liters mark; it traveled for about 95 and 157
seconds and with those data we had a 0.11 and 0.06 L/s flow rate which concluded that it was a slow-
moving fluid that exerted more pressure.

Sources of Errors

1. The operation of the inlet and outlet valves during the insertion of the needle pointing below the
pressure gauges.
2. Unfamiliarity of the equipment and its parts.
3. Misunderstanding of the procedures which leads to improper execution.


The velocity of the water varies as the water flow through a wider tube to narrower tube and
velocity drops in opposite case inconsiderate the pressure difference and type of water flow. Therefore, the
smaller the cross-section the higher pressure indicated and velocity eventually decrease.
