Putting group of log Q vs log H
From equation if H=0 (means no flow takes place just at a level)
Then log Q =log K
Q = K.Hn
log Q = log K+ log Hn

## Measure the length of Pipe through which the friction is to measured.

Measure the Dia of Pipe
Measure the area of collecting tank A = LxB
Allow the water to flow through Pipe.
When water enters the manometer, then carefully open outlets to escape air bubbles (if
any). And lose it immediately
6. Calculate the head of mercury.
7. Multiply head of mercury by 13.6 to get head loss due to friction.
8. Measure d & t from collecting tank
