WEEK 1: OSBORNE REYNOLDS TEST
TITLE: OSBORNE REYNOLDS TEST
AIM: To determine laminar flow
THEORY: The Re (non-dimensional) is the internationally recognized criterion denoting
fluid flow condition. The criterion is the ratio of the three parameters. Mean
Pipe velocity, Actual pipe diameter, Kinematics viscosity of the fluid. Re is
independent of pressure.
The two most commonly encountered terms describing fluids flow conditions
are laminar and turbulent. Laminar denotes a steady flow condition where all
stream lines flow parallel paths, there being no interaction (mixing) between
shear planes. The observer will note that under this condition, the dye
(indicator) will remain as a solid and easily identifiable component of flow.
Turbulent denotes on unsteady flow condition where stream lines interact
causing shear plane collapse and mixing of the fluid.
The observer will note that under this condition, the dye will become dispersed
as mixing occurs and will no longer remain a unit component of flow.
Re-denoting the flow of a fluid in a pipe has a value of less than 2000, the flow
will be laminar. If the Re is greater than 2800, the flow will be turbulent.

## APPARATUS/REAGENTS: Osborne Reynold apparatus

PROCEDURE:
- Lower the dye injector until it is above the bell mouth inlet
- Open the inlet valve and allow water to enter the stalling tank.
- Maintain a constant level by ensuring a small overflow spillage to waste
through the upper drain outlet.
- Fractionally open the control valve and allow a very slow flow through the
pipe and inject the dye.
- At low flow rates the dyes is draw out through the centre of the pipe.
- Increasing the flow rate produces eddies in the dye until the dye
completely diffuse into the water

WEEK FIFTEEN
DETERMINATION OF AMMONIA CONTENT IN WATER

## Ammonia (Using corning Amonis Electrode)

PROCEDURE:
1) Operate meter in Miltivolt mode
2) Immerse the end of equilibrated electrode into the first standard (the lowest in
concentration i.e 1 x 103 MNTecl) at an angle of 200 to 300 to the vertical. This
reduces the possibility of trapping gas bubbles at the gas permable membrane. If
bubbles are trapped gently tap the body at ensures they are dislodged.

3) The reading in the meter will stabilize in 1 – 2 minutes. Add 1.0ml of 10M Na0H to
each 10ml of solution to adjust the PH to 11 or greater. (We recommend use of 10ml
disposable syringe), After stabilization, note the mV reading displayed.

4) Remove electrode from solution and raise with distilled water around the membrane
and blot dry. CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO AVOID TOUCHING THE GAS
PERMEABLE MEMBRANE.

5) Repeat steps, 2, 3, and 4 for each of the calibration standards being used. A minimum
of two are required. Remove the electrode and raise with distilled water around the
gas membrane and blot dry.

6) Construct a calibration curve on semi- log paper by plotting the values of the
concentration standards on the axis versus mV reading obtained in these standards on
the linear axis.

7) Immerse the electrode into the sample as prescribed in step 2. after stablisation, add
1.0ml of 10M NaoH and allow 1 – 2 minutes for the meter reading to stabilization
when the reading has stabilized consult the calibration graph to determine the
concentration of displaced value in mV correspondences.
