EXAMPLE PROBLEM- Air at 1 atm and 68 o F flowing in a long rectangular duct whose cross section is 1 ft x 0.5 ft with a velocity of 40 ft/s. The roughness of the duct is 0.00006 in. What is the pressure drop per unit length? air = 0.075 lbm/ft 3 air =0.018 cP Conversion factor cP=6.72 .10 -4 lbm/ft.s Lecture 16

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
