Find the simplest x component of velocity for this flow field. Problem 3 Consider the incompressible flow of a fluid through a nozzle as shown in figure. The area of the nozzle is given by A = A (1- bx ) and the inlet velocity varies according to U = U (1- e- λt ) where A = 0 . 5 m 2 , L = 5 m , b = 0 . 1 m- 1 , λ = 0 . 2 s- 1 , and U = 5 m/s . Find and plot the acceleration on the centerline, with time as a parameter. Figure 1: Problem 3 Problem 4 Consider the incompressible, inviscid flow of air between two parallel disks of radius R = 75 mm , as shown in the figure. Air enters through a pipe of radius R i = 25 mm and exits radially, reaching R = 75 mm at a velocity V = 15 m/s . (a) Apply continuity equation and simplify the equation. 1 (b) From (a) show that ~ V = V ( R/r ) ~ e r , for R i < r < R . (c) Calculate the radial acceleration of a particle at r = R i and at r = R . Figure 2: Problem 4 Problem 5 The inviscid incompressible flow between two parallel disks rotating at an angular velocity ω is shown in the figure. It is known that the velocity is pure tangential,is shown in the figure....
