I.

Objective

Given by the lab sheet:

I.E. To determine the magnitude of the force of a water jet upon a flat plate

..............

II.

Theory

We should probably include some math. typesetting.

Here we begin with Eq. (1) that demonstrates some math

m˙ = fracδmδt

(1)

The volumetric flow rate is defined as

Q = uA Multiplying by the material density m˙ can also defined as

(2)

m˙ = ρuA

(3)

III.

Test Procedure & Equipment

The water table at SDSU was used seen in figure 1

I. Objective Given by the lab sheet: I.E. To determine the magnitude of the force of

Figure 1. Caption goes here.

Two plates were used a flat plate with beta 90 and a hemisperical plate with beta 180 seen in figure 2

I. Objective Given by the lab sheet: I.E. To determine the magnitude of the force of

Results and Discussion

The results can be seen in table 1 .

The maximum deviation for the flat plate was %. The maximum

deviation for the hemispherical plate was %. The difference in slope between theory and experimental for the flat plate was %. The difference in slope between theory and experimental for the hemispherical plate was %.

  • A. Source of Error

Discuss error types, and causes during your experiment.

  • B. Questions

1. Suppose the jet of water is inclined 10 from vertical. For the 180 deflector

  • a) What effect would this have on the measured force( give a value and percentage increase or decrease

in force)

  • b) How would this affect the slope?

  • c) How would this affect the bias?

    • 2. If the jockey weight is not correctly zeroed by .1 cm, what would you expect the bias to be? Discuss

    • 3. Explain at least one additional reason for observed slope or bias error?

    • 4. If your scatter was not within experimental error, give a probable cause.
