MAE 101A:Introductory Fluid Mechanics Homework 4 Due Monday February 15, 5:00 PM Problem 1 A reducer in a piping system is shown. The internal volume of the reducer is 0 . 2m 3 and its mass is 25 kg. Evaluate the total force that must be provided by surrounding pipes to support the reducer. The ﬂuid is gasoline (SG=0.72). Fig. 1: Problem 1 Problem 2 A 30 reducing elbow is shown. The ﬂuid is water. Evaluate the components of force that must be provided by the adjacent pipes to keep the elbow from moving. Fig. 2: Problem 2 Problem 3 A conical spray head is shown. The ﬂuid is water and the exit stream is uniform. Evaluate: a. the thickness of the spray sheet at 400 mm radius. b. the axial force exerted by the spray head on the supply pipe. 1
