Part – B ( 5 x 14 = 70 Marks)

1.  (A) (i) A simple manometer is used to measure the pressure of oil of relative density 0.74 flowing in a pipe line. it’s right limb is open to atmosphere and the left limb is connected to the pipe. The center of the pipe is 0.1m below the level of mercury in the right limb, if the difference of mercury levels in the two limbs is 0.2 m. Determine the absolute pressure of the oil in the pipe in ‘Pa’ ( 7 marks)
