3-4. For the coating operation described in Examples 3.1 and 3.2, we have produced an optical fiber having a diameter of 125 micrometers. The speed of the coated fiber at the take-up wheel is 4.5 meters per second and the desired thickness of the polymer coating is 40 micrometers. Determine the volumetric flow rate of the coating polymer that is required to achieve this thickness. 3-4. In Example 3.2 the cross-sectional area of the coating polymer, where the coated fiber leaves the system, is given by ()oopolymer1polymer11take-uppolymerwheelvQAρ=ρ〈〉Since we have no information about the polymer density at the entrance and exit of the
