A Newtonian fluid having a specific gravity of 0.92 ( [email protected] C = 1000 kg/m3) and a kinematic viscosity of 4 × 10-4 m2/s flows past a fixed surface. The velocity profile near the surface is shown in Fig. 1. Determine the (a) magnitude and (b) direction of the shearing stress developed on the plate when = 1 m/s, = 2 mm. (Hint: ) 2. The Panel in the slanted side of a water tank ( = 9790 N/m3) is a rectangle of width 2m, as in Fig. 2. Find (a) the water force on the panel and (b) its line of action (center of pressure). ⁄12) (Hint: sin 2 Figure 1 Figure 2 3. In Fig. 3 the flowing fluid is water at 20°C. Neglect losses. If = 170 kPa and the manometer fluid is a liquid which is heavier than water, estimate (a) and (b) the flow rate in m3/hr. ( 1360 Kg⁄m , 998.2 Kg⁄m @20°C) 4. Flow through the converging nozzle in Fig.4 can be approximated by the one-dimensional unsteady velocity distribution along the centerline , 1 2 , 1 ft⁄s and 6 in Find the (a) local and (b) convective accelerations and (c) the pressure gradient ⁄ of the ⁄2) at = 1 second. Assume that viscosity effects are fluid at the middle of the nozzle ( negligible. ( 1.0 lbm⁄ft , Hint: Euler equation ) 1 3 2 Figure 3 Figure 4 ...
