Problem 5.6 Narrowing of water stream from tap An incompressible viscous liquid flows out of a long, circular tube with a small radius R . At the exit plane (1), the velocity profile is the parabolic one characteristic of fully developed, laminar flow in a tube, u ( r ) = u m (1 - r 2 R 2 ) (1) Inside the pipe and right up to the exit plane, the velocity at the pipe wall is zero due to viscosity (the no-slip condition in viscous flows). Once the liquid stream emerges into the constant-pressure air environment, however,the air, having very low viscosity, offers little resistance to the liquid’s motion and the liquid feels essentially no shear stress

Unformatted text preview: at its boundaries. In response to this new boundary condition, internal viscous stresses in the fluid begin to straighten out the velocity profile as the fluid moves along, and eventually, at some station (2), the velocity becomes uniform at the average value V . (a) Does Bernoulli's equation apply in this flow between (1) and (2)? Explain. ANSWER (b) Neglecting gravitational and surface tension effects, find the radius contraction ratio R 2 /R 1 that occurs in the liquid stream after it emerges from the pipe, and the velocity ratio V u m .

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
