Unformatted text preview: ME 309 Fall 2008 Section 2 (Merkle) Homework # 23 Due Fri 24 Oct 2008 Problem 231 . Water flows through a horizontal, 10 mm smooth tube with a flow rate of 0.060 kg/s . Assuming that the flow is fully developed, calculate the average velocity, the Reynolds number, the approximate maximum velocity, the friction factor, the pressure drop for a 50 m length of pipe and the pumping power in watts needed to maintain the flow. Take the density of water as 995 kg.m 3 and the viscosity as 0.003 ns/m 2 . Solution: Given: mass flow rate, density, viscosity, pipe diameter, pipe length; Assumptions: incompressible, no body forces, fully developed Find : Reynolds number, average velocity, maximum velocity, friction factor, pressure drop for a 50 m length and pumping power Analysis: Average velocity : s m D m A m U / 768 . 010 . 995 06 . 4 4 2 2 = ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ = = = π ρπ ρ & & Reynolds number : 2550 10 3 010 . 768 . 995 Re 3 = × ⋅ ⋅ = = μ ρ D U (Flow is turbulent).
