Unformatted text preview: I a = I b ( I a = A a v a : current that flows through point a ). (i) Find the fluid velocity v b at point b . (ii) Apply current conservation to Pipe 2 and find v d at point d . (b) Is the pressure at point b greater or smaller than the pressure at point a ? Briefly explain your answer. Hint : Energy density equation is given by : P + (1/2) (v 2 ) + g y + IR = E pump /volume (c) How does pressure at point b and point d compare? Circle your response and explain your answer using the energy density model. (Hint: Remember Pipe 1 and Pipe 2 are two separate fluid systems!) { P b = P d , P b < P d , P b > P d } (d) Suppose we want to have P b = P d . One way to realize this is to add a pump to one of the pipes. Which pipe (Pipe 1 or Pipe 2) would you add the pump to? Explain your answer Briefly and Clearly....
