The channel dimensions are 10cmx10 m . Flow in the large container and outside the boundary layers can be considered frictionless. Boundary layers exist in the channel from point A to B. Flow from point B to D is fully developed and laminar with a

Unformatted text preview: velocity profile u/U max =1-y 2 /h 2 in the coordinate system shown. Static pressure at point B is being measured by the U-tube manometer shown in the figure. a. What is the gage pressure P B (N/m 2 ) at point B? b. If P B =-27,334 N/m 2 gage what is the average velocity V(m/s) in the channel? c. If V=6.67 m/s, what is the drag force on the channel walls from point A to B? d. If V=6.67 m/s what is the drag force on the side walls of the channel in the fully developed section from point B to C? e. What are the losses in Watts in the fully developed part of the flow from point B to D if the pump delivers 311 KW of power to the oil? x...
