Venturi Apparatus from PASCO
The Venturi Apparatus has a water channel with varying cross-section to study the relationship between flow speed and water pressure. The open design (2D cross section) allows students to see inside and directly measure all needed dimensions. There are 4 built-in ports to attach pressure sensors to measure the pressure at 4 places along the stream line simultaneously. Pressure changes caused by both fluid speed and viscosity (drag) can be measured. Quantitative measurements can be verified using flow rates measured with a Motion Sensor.
