What is the flow rate at pressure x when given these pressure drops?

Just as a rough estimate, say we assume this vessel is a container with liquid in it and assign all the expansion indexes combined, including the air bubbles in the water and the expansion of the pipe,...

Why the vertical height of the liquid column remains same after tilting the tube in the Barometer here?

No because the side of the test tube is supporting the mercury when it is slanted. The force due to gravity pulling the mercury out the bottom of a slanted tube is mass×cos(Ѳ)x9.8m/s^2 when Ѳ is the ...

I want to find the energy capture from a submerged "waterwheel" type turbine with converging plating of 21 degree to form a ducted funnel

In open flow, the power and efficiency are the same as a free propeller with the same diameter as the duct's maximum diameter - less friction effects, of course. Ducts can sometimes help with ...
