2. (Elbow --- 25 pts) Water is moving steadily through a double entrance, single exit elbow, as shown in the diagram below. Neglect the weight of the elbow. Parameters of the problem: Pipe diameters: D 1 ,D 2 ,D 3 Pipe pressures: P 1 , P 2 ,P 3 Fluid velocities: V 1 , V 2 Angle of pipe 3 w/r to horizontal: Volume of elbow = el Weight of the elbow: W el M i s c e l l a n e o u s : Density of water = ρ w Acceleration of gravity = g a) Draw, using dashed lines, the control volume (CV) you would used to find the vertical and horizontal forces necessary to
