Problem 5.22 Torque on an S-bend An incompressible liquid (density ) flows through an S-bend in a pipe with an area contraction, as shown in the sketch. The volume flow rate through the bend is Q , the pressure at station 1 is p 1 , and station 2 is open to the atmosphere, which is at pressure p a . Find expressions for the x and y components of force and the counter-clockwise torque
