HW#4 Problems 1. A straight piece of pipe containing a sand (permeability = 1 darcy) is inclined at an angle of 45 degrees from the horizontal. It is part of a flow loop for a brine having a viscosity of 1 centipoise and a density such that the gravity gradient, ρ g, is 0.001 atm/cm. The sand filled pipe is 5 meters long and has an inner cross section area of 50 square centimeters. An absolute pressure gauge at the top of the pipe reads 1.4 atmospheres while a similar gauge at the bottom of the pipe reads 2.0 atmospheres. Find the volumetric flow rate through the pipe and the direction in which it flows. 2.
