(b) How would your answer change if the particle diameter is increased to 50 mm. and the fluid viscosity is reduced to 5.0 x 10-4 Pa.s? [35 points] 3.0 Denn 4.1 [25 points] 4.0 Denn 4.3 [25 points] 5.0 You have a granular solid (SG 4) comprised of particles with diameters 300 m and smaller. You want to separate out all particles with diameters 20 m and smaller by pumping water at 25 o C upwards through a slurry of the granular material in a column with diameter 10 cm. What flow rate is required to ensure that all particles with diameters in the desired range are swept out of the top of the column? [30 points]...
