The arrangement shown in the figure measures the velocity $V$ of a gas of density $1 kg/m^{3}$ flowing through a pipe. The acceleration due to gravity is $9.81 m/s^{2}$. If the manometric fluid is water (density $1000 \: kg/m^{3}$) and the velocity $V$ is $20 m/s$, the differential head $h$ (in mm) between the two arms of the manometer is __________.

Consider steady, viscous, fully developed flow of a fluid through a circular pipe of internal diameter $\text{D}$. We know that the velocity profile forms a paraboloid about the pipe centre line, given by: $V=-C\left(r^{2}-\dfrac{D^{2}}{4}\right) m/s$, where $C$ is a ... $\text{A-B}$, as shown in the figure, is proportional to $D^{n}$. The value of $n$ is ________.
