Unformatted text preview: Determine the flow rate Q of the channel. In the figure, the contraction coefficient C c = 0.61. 4. A fluid particle flowing along a stagnation streamline, as shown below, slows down as it ap-proaches the stagnation point. The location of a particle is given approximately by s = 0.6 e-0.5 t , where t is in second and s is in feet. (a) Determine the speed of the fluid particle at time t = 1 sec by using the relation V P ( t ) = . (b) By knowing that s = 0.6 e-0.5 t , the fluid particle velocity can be rewritten as a function of such that 0.5 . Determine the speed of the fluid at = 1 ft. (c) Determine the fluid acceleration along the streamline at = 1 ft. (Note: , where and ) Fig. 3 Fig. 4...
