Unformatted text preview: theoretical velocities and forces of the jet stream were calculated and analyzed. The assumption that the magnitude of the velocity will not vary, but the direction will vary, was also a basis for the experiment. When the water jet impacts a target, it changes direction. This concept is crucial in most fluid-mechanical systems, such as turbines and compressors. This experiment shows how well theoretical equations predict the momentum a target will face. Conclusion...
