S.A.E. 70 lube oil at 0°F is flowing through a horizontal 5” schedule 40 piping system (of diameter d) at a flow
rate w. Determine the pressure drop, ∆p, and the Reynold's number Re. Assume that the friction factor is determined by the laminar flow relationship for smooth pipes. The equivalent length...
