ENGR 2097 Assignment #8 Solutions Q1 Solution Oil is being discharged by a horizontal pipe from a storage tank open to the atmosphere. The flow rate of oil through the pipe is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The flow is steady and incompressible. 2 The entrance effects are negligible, and thus the flow is fully developed. 3 The entrance and exit loses are negligible. 4 The flow is laminar (to be verified). 5 The pipe involves no components such as bends, valves, and connectors. 6 The piping section involves no work devices such as pumps and turbines. Properties The density and kinematic viscosity of oil are given to be ρ = 850 kg/m 3 and ν = 0.00062 m 2 /s, respectively.

Therefore, the flow is laminar and the analysis above is valid. Discussion The flow rate will be even less when the inlet and outlet losses are considered, especially when the inlet is not well-rounded. Q2 Solution The flow rate through a specified water pipe is given. The pressure drop, the head loss, and the pumping power requirements are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The flow is steady and incompressible. 2 The entrance effects are negligible, and thus the flow is fully developed. 3 The pipe involves no components such Oil tank 4 m 6 mm
