PROBLEM 8.1 KNOWN: Flowrate and temperature of water in fully developed flow through a tube of prescribed diameter. FIND: Maximum velocity and pressure gradient. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Isothermal flow. PROPERTIES: Table A-6 , Water (300K): = 998 kg/m 3 , = 855 10-6 N s/m 2 .
