## Calculate the maximum achievable bridge out-of-balance voltage for an applied torque T of 103 N m given the following

Four strain gauges, with specification given below, are available to measure the torque on a cylindrical shaft 4 cm in diameter connecting a motor and load.

(a) Draw clearly labelled diagrams showing:

(i) the arrangement of the gauges on the shaft;

(ii) the arrangement of the gauges in the bridge circuit, for optimum accuracy and sensitivity.

(b) Calculate the maximum achievable bridge out-of-balance voltage for an applied torque T of 103 N m given the following:

Tensile and compressive strains is the shear modulus of the shaft material and a is the radius of the shaft in metres. ### Find the gain and phase characteristics of the maintaining amplifier.

A solid-state capacitive humidity sensor has a capacitance given by: C = 1.7 RH + 365pF where RH is the percentage relative humidity. The sensor has an associated parallel resistance….

### calculate the mean velocity of the gas at maximum flow rate

A pitot tube is used to measure the mean velocity of high pressure gas in a 0.15 m diameter pipe. At maximum flow rate the mean pitot differential pressure is….

### Calculate an accurate value for the differential pressure developed across the chosen Venturi, at maximum flow rate.

A Venturi is to be used to measure the flow rate of water in a pipe of diameter D = 0.20 m. The maximum flow rate of water is 1.5….
