This lesson covers the principles and techniques of flow measurement in fluid mechanics. It delves into the concept of flow obstruction flow rate measurement and the use of drag for measurement. The lesson also discusses the use of instruments like the venturi meter and orifice meter, which work on the principle of flow obstruction. It explains how these instruments measure the pressure drop in a flow field to calculate the flow rate. The lesson also touches upon the assumptions made during these measurements, such as considering the flow as incompressible and inviscid. It concludes with a brief introduction to the measurement of compressible flow and the use of drag for flow measurement.

- Flow measurement techniques are crucial in fluid mechanics, with applications in various commercial and engineering fields.
- Instruments like the venturi meter and orifice meter work on the principle of flow obstruction, measuring the pressure drop in a flow field to calculate the flow rate.
- Assumptions such as considering the flow as incompressible and inviscid are often made during these measurements.
- The measurement of compressible flow and the use of drag for flow measurement are other important aspects of flow measurement.
