Impact of Jet On Vanes Apparatus

Fluid Mechanics Lab
Order Code 29207


The Set-up consists of two sided clear fabrication. Water is fed through a nozzle and discharged vertically to strike a target carried on a stem, which extends through the cover. A weight carrier is mounted on the upper end of the stem. The dead weight of the moving parts is counter balanced by a compression spring. The vertical force exerted on the target plate is measured by adding the weights supplied to the weight pan until the mark on the weight pan corresponds with the level gauge. A total of two targets are provided a flat plat and a hemispherical cup.
· To measure the force developed by a jet of water impinging upon a different targets (Hemispherical & Flat 
Plate) and comparison with the forces predicted by the momentum theory.
