Section –C

Note : Attempt any two questions

5.
a.     Calculate the density, specific weight of 5 litre of petrol of specific gravity 0.75
b.     An orifice meter with orifice diameter 100mm is inserted in a pipe of 200mm diameter. The pressure gauges fitted upstream and downstream of the orifice meter fives reading of 19.62 N/cm2 and N/cm2 respectively. Coefficient of discharge for the meter is given as 0.6 find the discharge of water through pipe.
