But if work is expended in producing irregular eddying motion, the head at the section CD will be diminished. Suppose the mass ABCD comes in a short time Z to A'B'C'D'. The resultant force parallel to the axis of the stream is Pw'l'Po(wi-0->)*P1w1» where po is put for the unknown pressure on the annular space between AB and EF. The impulse of that force is lPw+Po(<°1“w>'P1'»°1l3l'he horizontal change of momentum in the same time is the difference of the momenta of E C '" CDC'D' and ABA'B', because the amount / of momentum be-A / tween A'B' and CD J;//' 5: remains unchanged if the motion is 1-T' -' '! i steady.

Equating this to the impulse, lP°'+P0('”1'°°)'P1°~'1l¢ = (G/§)Qf§ 7»'1"»')-Assume that po =p, the pressure at AB extending unchanged through the portions of fluid in contact with AE BF which lie out of path of the stream. Then (since Q=w11/1) i t e (P-Pi) = (G/g)vi(1'1-ff) 3 P/G-P1/G =°v1(v1~v)/g; (2) P/G +v'/2g =1>1/G +v12/2g+ (v-v»)“/2g- (3) no sensible internal work is done, by the last term on the right. That is, (7)-7J1)2/2g has to be added to the total head at CD, which is p, /G +2112/2g, to make it equal to the total head at AB, or (v-v,)'=/2g is the head lost in shock at the abrupt change of section. But 1'-rl is the relative velocity of the two parts of the stream. Hence, when an abrupt change of section occurs, the head due to the relative velocity is lost in shock, or (v-'v1)'/2g foot-pounds of energy is wasted for each pound of fluid. Experiment verifies this result, so that the assumption that po=p appears to be admissible, If there is no shock, P1/G = P/G 'l' (1/2"1/12)/2% P1/'G:P/G-Ui('U1-11)/§ Hence the pressure head at CD in the second case is less than in the former by the quantity (v-'v1)2/2g, or, putting wit/1 =wv, by the quantity lf there is shock, (v”/2g)(I-<»/w1)”- (4) ', THEORY OF THE DISCHARGE FROM ORIFICES AND MOUTHPIECES § 37. .Minimum Coejicient of Contraction. Re-entrant Mouth-Suppose that in a short time t, the mass 00110 comes to the position ()'O” a'a'; the impulse of the horizontal external forces acting on the mass during that time is equal to the horizontal change of momentum. The pressure on the side OC of the mass will be balanced by the pressure on the opposite side OE, and so for all other portions of the vertical surfaces of the mass, excepting the portion EF opposite the mouthpiece and the surface AaaB of the jet. On EF the pressure is simply the hydrostatic pressure due to the depth, that is, (pa-i-Gh)S'l. On the surface and section Atw, B of the jet, the horizontal resultant of the pressure is equal to the atmospheric pressure pa acting on the vertical projection AB of the jet; that is, the resultant pressure is -Pail. Hence the resultant horizontal force for the whole mass OOaa is (pa+Gh)S2-paSZ=GhSZ. lts impulse in the time tis Ghfl Z. Since the motion is steady there is no change of momentum between O'O' and aa. The change of horizontal momentum is, therefore, the difference of the horizontal momentum lost in the space OOO'O and gained in the space aaa'a'. In the former space there is no horizontal momentum. The volume of the space aaa'a' is owl; the mass of liquid in that space is (G/g)w'vt; its momentum is (G/g)wv2t. Equating impulse to momentum gained, Ghilt = (G / g)w'v2t; w/SZ =gh/112. But v2=2gh, and w/§ Z=r., ; w/Q=§ =C¢; a. result confirmed by experiment with mouthpieces of this kind. A similar theoretical investigation is not possible for orifices in plane surfaces, because the velocity along the sides of the vessel in the neighbourhood of the orifice is not so small that it can be neglected. The resultant horizontal pressure is therefore greater than Ghfl, and the contraction is less. The experimental values of the coefficient of discharge for a re-entrant mouthpiece are o~5149 (Borda), o-5547 (Bidone), 0-5324 (Weisbach), values which differ some point in the interior of the vessel from which the fluid is discharged, and gradually acquire the velocity of the jet. Let Mm, fig. 40 be such a filament, the point M being taken where the Velocity is insensibly small, and m at the most contracted section of the jet, where the filaments have become parallel and 9~ ET

With such an orifice the velocity near the pointsCD is negligible, and the pressure at those points may be taken equal to the hydrostatic pressure due to the depth from the free surface. Let SZ be the area of the mouthpiece AB, w that of the contracted jet aa exercise uniform mutual pressure. Take the free surface AB for datum line, and let pl, zu, hi, be the pressure, velocity and depth below datum at M; p, 11, h, the corresponding quantities at m, Then § 29, eq. (311), 11,2/2g-hp, /G~h, = v2/2g-ijp/G-k. (I) But at M, since the velocity is insensible, the pressure is the hydrostatic pressure due to the depth; that is, 'v1=o, p1=p, ,-l-Ghl.
