I was able to follow our submersion by means of the manometer.
I could now follow the ascent of the boat without consulting the manometer.
The needle of the manometer indicated nine thousand five hundred feet, and was rapidly nearing the next division.
In the same way we may use a manometer to measure osmotic pressure.
They threw the manometer into the water to see if it would float.
The first wave which comes through is heard as a click, and occurs at a point on the manometer or dial scale from 5-10 mm.
A cylinder filled with water (a) was connected by means of tubing (b) to a U-tube, or manometer (c), filled with mercury.
This pressure is transmitted directly to the manometer G, and may be read off in centimeters of water on the accompanying scale.
"Ask them how the manometer stands, Chalmers," ordered the Hon. Derek.
There are certain precautions which must be strictly observed when deductions are drawn from the manometer readings.
manometer ma·nom·e·ter (mā-nŏm'ĭ-tər)
An instrument that is used for measuring the pressure of liquids and gases.
An instrument used to measure the pressure exerted by liquids and gases. Pressure is exerted on one end of a U-shaped tube partially filled with liquid; the liquid is displaced upwards on the other side of the tube by a distance proportional to the pressure difference on each side of the tube.
