Unformatted text preview: p s = 150 kN/m 2 . a) For the conditions of the figure, what is the value of A 2 (in square meters)? Applying Bernoullis equation at section 1 and section 2, we have p 1 + (1/2) v 1 2 = p 2 + (1/2) v 2 2 p = (1/2) (v 1 2 v 2 2 ) The continuity equation yields A 1 v 1 = A 2 v 2 v 1 = (A 2 /A 1 )v 2 Combining the two equation leads to the mathematical expression for the graph: p = (1/2) [(A 2 /A 1 ) 2 1]v 2 2 According to this expression, p = 0 when A 1 = A 2 . Therefore, A 22 = 16 A 2 = 0.25 m 2 b) What is the value of the volume flow rate? When A 12 = 32 m4 , (A 2 /A 1 ) 2 = (32/16) = 2 and p = 150 kN/m 2 . The expression obtained in part a) yields p = (1/2) [2 1]v 2 2 v 2 = (2 p/ ) = 17.3 m/s The volume flow rate is A 1 v 1 = 4.33 m 3 /s...
