All

gases are fluids, but not all liquids are fluids. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter

and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids.

The density of a substance is its weight per unit volume. The unit volume in the

English system of measurement is 1 cubic foot. In the metric system it is the cubic

centimeter; therefore, density is expressed in pounds per cubic foot or in grams per cubic

centimeter. To find the density of a substance, you must know its weight and volume.

You then divide its weight by its volume to find the weight per unit volume. In equation

form, this is written as

EXAMPLE: The liquid that fills a certain container weighs 1,497.6 pounds. The

container is 4 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. Its volume is 24 cubic feet (4

ft x 3 ft x 2 ft). If 24 cubic feet of this liquid weighs 1,497.6 pounds, then 1 cubic foot

weighs

Or 62.4 pounds. Therefore, the density of the liquid is 62.4 pounds per cubic foot.

This is the density of water at 4°C and is usually used as the standard for

comparing densities of other substances. The temperature of 4°C was selected because

water has its maximum density at this temperature. In the metric system, the density of

water is 1 gram per cubic centimeter. The standard temperature of 4°C is used

whenever the density of liquids and solids is measured. Changes in temperature

will not change the weight of a substance but will change the volume of the substance

by expansion or contraction, thus changing the weight per unit volume.

In physics, the word specific implies a ratio. Weight is the measure of the earth’s

attraction for a body. The earth’s attraction for a body is called gravity. Thus, the ratio

of the weight of a unit volume of some substance to the weight of an equal

volume of a standard substance, measured under standard pressure and temperature

con- ditions, is called specific gravity. The terms specific weight and specific density

are sometimes used to express this ratio. The following formulas are used to find the

specific gravity (sp gr) of solids and liquids, with water used as the standard substance.

or,

The same formulas are used to find the specific gravity of gases by substituting air,

oxygen, or hydrogen for water.

If a cubic foot of a certain liquid weighs 68.64 pounds, then its specific gravity is

1.1,

Thus, the specific gravity of the liquid is the ratio of its density to the density of water. If

the specific gravity of a liquid or solid is known, the density of the liquid or solid maybe

obtained by multiplying its specific gravity by the density of water. For example, if a

certain hydraulic liquid has a specific gravity of 0.8, 1 cubic foot of the liquid

weighs 0.8 times as much as a cubic foot of water—0.8 times 62.4, or 49.92

pounds. In the metric system, 1 cubic centimeter of a substance with a specific gravity of

0.8 weighs 1 times 0.8, or 0.8 grams. (Note that in the metric system the specific gravity

of a liquid or solid has the same numerical value as its density, because water weighs

1 gram per cubic centimeter.) Specific gravity and density are independent of the size

of the sample under consideration and depend only on the substance of which it is made.

A device called a hydrometer is used for measuring the specific gravity of

liquids.

A fluid is a substance that flows easily. Gases and liquids are fluids, although sometimes

the dividing line between liquids and solids is not always clear. Because of their ability to

flow, fluids can exert buoyant forces, multiply forces in hydraulic systems, and allow

aircraft to fly and ships to float.

The topic that this page will explore will be pressure and depth. If a fluid is within a

container then the depth of an object placed in that fluid can be measured. The deeper the

object is placed in the fluid, the more pressure it experiences. This is because is the

weight of the fluid above it. The denser the fluid above it, the more pressure is exerted on

the object that is submerged, due to the weight of the fluid.

The formula that gives the P pressure on an object submerged in a fluid is:

P=r*g*h

Where

• g is the acceleration of gravity

• h is the height of the fluid above the object

If the container is open to the atmosphere above, the added pressure must be included if

one is to find the total pressure on an object. The total pressure is the same as absolute

pressure on pressure gauges readings, while the gauge pressure is the same as the fluid

pressure alone, not including atmospheric pressure.

Ptotal = Patmosphere + (r * g * h)

Example:

Find the pressure on a scuba diver when she is 12 meters below the surface of the ocean.

Assume standard atmospheric conditions.

Solution:

The density of sea water is 1.03 X 10 3 kg/m3 and the atmospheric pressure is 1.01 x 105

N/m2.

Pfluid = r g h = (1.03 x10 3 kg/m3) (9.8 m/s2) (12 m) = 1.21 x 105 Newtons/m2

Ptotal = Patmosphere + Pfluid = (1.01 x 105) + (1.21 x 105) Pa = 2.22 x 10 2 kPa (kilo Pascals)

selecting the pressure range itself, particularly for low pressure measurements. If you get

it wrong your measurements are going to be out by approximately 1 bar, which could be

a huge error if you have specified a 10 bar range for example.

Also if you have taken delivery of a pressure transducer with the wrong pressure

reference it will normally mean that the manufacturer will have to build a replacement

because the reference pressure often determines the base construction of the sensing

element.

The most common pressure reference is gauge pressure which is signified by a ‘g’ after

the pressure unit e.g. 30 psi g, this indicates that the pressure measured is the total

pressure minus atmospheric pressure. There are two types of gauge reference pressure:

vented gauge (vg) and sealed gauge (sg),

A vented gauge pressure transmitter for example allows the outside air pressure to be

exposed to the negative side of the pressure sensing diaphragm via a vented cable or a

hole on the side of the device, so that it always measures with reference to the ambient

barometric pressure. Thus a vented gauge reference pressure sensor reads zero pressure

when the process pressure connection is held open to atmospheric air.

A sealed gauge reference is very similar except that atmospheric pressure is sealed on the

negative side of the diaphragm. This is usually adopted on high pressure applications

such as measuring hydraulic pressures where atmospheric pressure changes will have

negligible effect on the accuracy of the sensor so venting is not necessary. This also

allows manufacturers to provide secondary pressure containment for extra protection if

the burst pressure of the sensing diaphragm is exceeded.

There is another way of creating a sealed gauge reference and this is to seal a high

vacuum on the reverse side of the sensing diaphragm. Then by adjusting the electronics,

the output signal is offset by 1 bar so the pressure sensor reads close to zero when

measuring atmospheric pressure.

A sealed gauge reference pressure transducer will never read exactly zero when left open

to atmospheric air, because atmospheric pressure is always changing and the reference in

this case is fixed at a nominal 1 bar.

An absolute pressure measurement is one that is referred to absolute vacuum. The best

example of an absolute referenced pressure is the measurement of barometric pressure.

In order to produce an absolute pressure sensor the manufacturer will seal a high vacuum

behind the sensing diaphragm. Therefore if you hold open the process pressure

connection of an absolute pressure transmitter to the air it will read the actual barometric

pressure.

So how do you know when to measure absolute pressure or when to measure gauge

pressure?

This is not always straightforward but generally if you want to measure or control a

pressure that is influenced by changes in atmospheric pressure, e.g. the level of liquid in

an open tank or the output pressure of an air compressor; you would use a vented gauge

pressure instrument since you are interested in the pressure reading minus the

atmospheric pressure component.

If you want to measure pressures that are not influenced by changes in atmospheric

pressure, e.g. leak testing a completely sealed non-flexible container, you would use an

absolute pressure sensor. If a gauge pressure sensor was used instead to measure the

container pressure and the barometric pressure changed then the sensor’s reading would

change despite the fact that the pressure in the container remains the same.

pressure. It can measure the pressure exerted by the atmosphere by using water, air, or

mercury. Pressure tendency can forecast short term changes in the weather. Numerous

measurements of air pressure are used within surface weather analysis to help find

surface troughs, high pressure systems, and frontal boundaries.

Open-tube manometer - The open-tube manometer is another device that can be used to

measure pressure. The open-tube manometer is used to measure the pressure of a gas in a

container.

on the following principles: an aneroid capsule (Vidie capsule, which is a thin, disk-

shaped box or capsule, usually metallic) is partially evacuated of gas, and is restrained

from collapsing by an external or internal spring. The deflection of the spring will be

nearly proportional to the difference between the internal and external pressures.

Magnification of the spring deflection is obtained both by connecting capsules in series

and by mechanical linkages.
