Explanation:-
Answer : BDiscuss it below :Himanshu Gupta Said on 2019-08-24 18:07:07hence the given answer is correct. Himanshu Gupta Said on 2019-08-24 18:05:56a pitot tube is used in wind tunnel experiments and on airplanes to measure flow speed. It's a slender tube that has two holes on it. The front hole is placed in the
airstream to measure what's called the stagnation pressure. The side hole measures the static pressure. Shriram Bairwa Said on 2018-11-01 10:55:38I thin D !! OOPS Login [Click here] is required to post your answer/resultHelp other students, write article, leave your comments |
