Both ends of a U-tube manometer are exposed to the atmosphere. There exists a possibility that the height difference of the manometer is non-zero. True or False?

2 / 25

As a balloon rises in the air its volume increases, at the end it acquires a stable height and cannot rise any further.

3 / 25

Which of the following cannot be the value of absolute pressure of a fluid at any point?

4 / 25

When body is completely or partially immersed in a fluid, how much its weight be distributed for it to be in stable equilibrium.

5 / 25

A uniform body of size 4 m long, 2.5 m wide and 1.5 m deep floats in water. What is the weight of the body if depth of immersion is 1 m ?

A student wants to find the absolute pressure of water at a point below the surface of water. He has a barometer and a manometer pressure gauge. The barometer reads 1.3152 bar where as the manometer pressure gauge reads 0.3152 bar. What is the absolute pressure? (Assume that pressure at one end of the manometer is atmospheric.)
