Solution

## Venturimeter:A venturimeter is a device that measures the rate of flow of fluid through a pipe.The venturi meter's operation is based on Bernoulli's equation.The flow equation for a venturi metre is derived from three equations: Bernoulli's equation, conservation of energy equation, and continuity equation.Rate of discharge is ${Q}_{actual}=\frac{{c}_{d}{A}_{1}{A}_{2}\sqrt{2gh}}{\sqrt{{{A}_{1}}^{2}-{{A}_{2}}^{2}}}$. Here, $Q$ is the theoretical discharge, ${A}_{1}$ is the area at the convergent section,${A}_{2}$is the area at divergent section, $g$is the acceleration due to gravity ,$h$ is the height.Venturimeter is a device used to measure the rate of flow of fluid flowing through a pipe.
