# A vertical venturi meter measures the flow of water and has an entrance of 125mm diameter and throat of 50mm diameter. There are pressure gauges at the entrance and at the throat, which is 250 mm above the entrance. If the coefficient for the meter is 0.97 and pressure difference is 50 kN/m2, calculate the actual discharge in m3/s.
