((1) Plot these data in the form of dimensionless :1 versus
dimensionless y, and suggest a suitable power-law curve
ﬁt. (b) Suppose that the tunnel speed is increased until u = 90 ft/s at y = 0.11 in. Estimate the new wall shear
stress, in lbf/ftz. For straightening and smoothing an airﬂow in a SO—em-
diameter duct, the duct is packed with a “honeycomb” of
thin straws of length 30 cm and diameter 4 mm, as in Fig.
P628. The inlet ﬂow is air at 110 kPa and 20°C, moving at an average velocity of 6 m/s. Estimate the pressure drop
across the honeycomb. Thousands

reservoir 1 to 2 at a rate of 3 ft3/s, as shown in Fig. P662.
If the pipe is cast iron of diameter 6 in and the pump is 75

one reservoir to another 20 ft higher, as in Fig. P6102.
The piping system consists of 60 ft of galvanized iron 2—
in pipe, 21 reentrant entrance, two screwed 90° long-radius
elbows, a screwedvopen gate valve, and a sharp exit. What
is the input power required in horsepower with and with—
out a 6° well—designed conical expansion added to the
exit? The flow rate is 0.4 nS/s. 6° cone ...
