A venturimeter is used for the measurement of discharge of
water in a horizontal pipeline. The upstream diameter is 300 mm, the throat is
of 150 mm diameter and the difference in pressure between the inlet and throat
is 3 m head of water. If the loss of head through the converging section of the
meter is one-eighth of the throat velocity head, calculate the discharge in the
pipe.
