Unformatted text preview: b) Explain whether the parameter L affects the velocity distribution. c) If the answer is ‘no’ in b, please explain why? # Question 3 It is given that velocity distribution for laminar, incompressible flow of a fluid in a circular tube is: ( ) ⎥ ⎥ ⎦ ⎤ ⎢ ⎢ ⎣ ⎡ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ − − = 2 2 1 4 R r L R P P v L o z μ a) From the equation, develop an expression for the average velocity z v inside the tube. (show all the steps) b) Show the mass flow rate (show all the steps). c) Calculate max for z v L =500 mm, L P P − =2 psig, =5 mm, R =1cp 2...
