Answer / kumar suman saurabh

by applying bernoulli eqn for real fluid.....from this we
can find which side energy per unit fluid is more along wid
major losses...and fluid flows from higher energy head to
lower one.........

i am inserting differential u tube manometer in the
this one column level is more than another,by this the flow
of fluid direction is from higher level to lower

Answer / kumar

As earlier one told that always fluid flows from high head
to lower head. It is applicable for river water. But in
the question they mentioned clearly that liquid is flowing
in the pipe. It may be connected to pump also. then head
concept is not applicable only pressure concept.

Suppose there is a sump tank. We have to transfer that
liquid into some height. for this transfer i have provided
one pump. it will transfer the liquid from lower head to
higher head.

Answer / neeraj kumar

we can heat the pipe (if possible) at certain location and
check the temperature on two sides of that point of heating
significantly far away and then the direction of fluid flow
would be in that direction where the temp. is higher.
