1. The main shortcomings of diaphragms are that they are prone to shock vibrations.
2. Diaphragms have the advantages of high accuracy and good dynamic response
Selection of material for diaphragms mainly depends upon temperature
range and chemical nature of fluid coming in contact with diaphragm
during pressure measurement.

The two inputs of a CRO are fed with two stationary periodic signals.
In the X-Y mode, the screen shows a figure which changes from ellipse
to circle and back to ellipse with its major axis changing orientation
slowly and repeatedly. The following inference can be made from this.
The measurement system shown in the figure uses three sub systems in
cascade whose gains are specified as G1, G2 and 1/G3. The relative
small errors associated with each respective subsystem G1, G2,G3 are ε1,ε2 and ε3.The error associated with the output is [GATE2009]
