Question:-
The manometer shown in the given figure connects two pipes carrying oil and water respectively from the figure one

Option (A)
Can conclude that the pressure in the pipes are equal
Option (B)
Can conclude that the pressure in the oil pipe is higher
Option(C)
Can conclude that the pressure in the water pipe is higher
Option(D)
Cannot compare the pressure in the two pipes for want of sufficient data
Correct Option:
(B)
Question Solution:
Poil + r0gH = Pwater + rwgH
Poil-Pwater = (rw-r0)gH
Since rw > r0
\ Poil > Pwater
