2 Archimedes' principle and a measurement of the upthrust acting on an object partially immersed in the liquid; the term displacer is used. 3 A measurement of the pressure at some point in the liquid, the pressure due to a colunm of liquid of height h being hpg, where p is the liquid density and g the acceleration due to gravity. 4 A measurement of the weight of the vessel containing the liquid plus liquid. The weight of the liquid is Ahpg, where A is the crosssectional area of the vessel, h the height of liquid, p its density andg the acceleration due to gravity and thus changes in the height of liquid give weight changes.

The orifice plate has the usual non-linear relationship between the pressure difference and the volume rate of flow. 5%. It also produces a greater pressure drop. Problems of silting and clogging can occur if particles are present in liquids. 31) is an example of a variable area flow meter; a constant pressure difference is maintained between the main flow and that at the constriction by changing the area of the constriction. The rotameter has a float in a tapered vertical tube with the fluid flow pushing the float upwards.

F. at 200° C with the cold junction at 20°C is: 6 L4lo Block at constant Constantan Temp. f. 7 Pyrometers Methods used for the measurement of temperature which involve the radiation emitted by the body include: 1 Optical pyrometer This is based on comparing the brightness of the light emitted by the hot body with that from a known standard. 2 Total radiation pyrometer This involves the measurement of the total amount of radiation emitted by the hot body by a resistance element or a thermopile. Instrumentation system elements 37 The optical pyrometer, known generally as the disappearing filament pyrometer, involves just the visible part of the radiation emitted by a hot object.
