An incompressible liquid flows steadily along the pipe shown in the figure below. Determine the
direction of flow and the head loss over the 6-m length of pipe.
Assume flow from (1) to (2) and use the energy equation

Alternatively, you could use Laplace's Law,
delta P = sigma*(1/R1 + 1/R2)
P - 0 = sigma/R = 12.2 Pa
Note: FBD and force balance yield same answer as Laplace's Law,
but in some cases one is more conv
