Fluid Mechanics Problem 4 Oil ( ρ = 800 kg/m 3 ) flows through a pipe line (see figure below), which contracts from 450 mm diameter at A to 300 mm diameter at B and then forks, one branch being 150 mm diameter discharging at C and the other branch 225 mm diameter discharging at D. (a) If the velocity at A is 1.8 m/s and the velocity at D is 3.6 m/s, what will be the discharges at C and D and the velocities at B and C? (b) If the pressure at A is 50 kPa, what is the pressure at B, C and D? Assume no energy loss and zero elevation difference. B D C A
