If minor losses are neglected, the expected flow rate through the pipe is (a) 0.048 m3/h, (b) 2.87 m3/h, (c) 134 m3/h, (d) 172 m3/h, (e) 385 m3/h If, in Prob. FE6.6 the pipe is rough and the actual flow rate is 90 m3/h, then the expected average roughness height of the pipe is approximately (a) 1.0 mm, (b) 1.25 mm, (c) 1.5 mm, (d) 1.75 mm, (e) 2.0 mm Suppose in Prob. FE6.6 the two reservoirs are connected, not by a pipe, but by a sharp-edged orifice of diameter 8 cm. Then the expected flow rate is approximately (a) 90 m3/h, (b) 579 m3/h, (c) 748 m3/h, (d) 949 m3/h, (e) 1048 m3/h Oil [ 0.1 kg/(m s), SG 0.9] flows through...
