Question

Consider a pipe that branches out into two parallel pipes and then rejoins at a junction downstream. The two parallel pipes have the same lengths and friction factors. The diameters of the pipes are 2 cm and 4 cm. The flow rate in pipe with 2 cm diameter is 10 L/min.

Draw piping system

What is the flow rate in the other pipe? (L/min)

What is the headloss at the junction? Friction factor is 0.001 and the length of the pipe is 5m.

A flowrate enters a junction and is split into two pipes (Pipe
P-1 and Pipe P-2) then join back together downstream. The diameters
of both pipes are 12 inches and have C values of 145. The length of
P-1 is 1650 feet, while the length of P-2 is 2200 feet. If the
flowrate of P-1 is fixed at 940 GPM, what is the flowrate in
P-2?

The water flowing through a 1.7 cm (inside diameter) pipe flows
out through three 1.3 cm pipes. (a) If the flow rates in the three
smaller pipes are 26, 19, and 12 L/min, what is the flow rate in
the 1.7 cm pipe? (b) What is the ratio of the speed of water in the
1.7 cm pipe to that in the pipe carrying 26 L/min?

The water flowing through a 2.0 cm (inside diameter) pipe flows out
through three 1.4 cm pipes. (a) If the flow rates
in the three smaller pipes are 24, 15, and 11 L/min, what is the
flow rate in the 2.0 cm pipe? (b) What is the
ratio of the speed of water in the 2.0 cm pipe to that in the pipe
carrying 24 L/min?

Water flows through two horizontal pipes that are connected one
after another but located at different heights. There are pressure
gauges on each of the pipes. The speed of the water through the
lower pipe is 5.0 m/s. The two pipes have different diameters. The
lower pipe has a diameter of 6 cm and the higher one 4 cm. Assume
no viscous losses.
a. Draw a diagram of the situation and calculate the speed in
the upper pipe.
b. What...

(vi) Water flows full through two horizontal pipes of the same
length and the same material. Both flows are turbulent and Pipe 1
is half the diameter of Pipe 2. If both pipes have the same mean
flow speed, which of the following statements is correct regarding
the pressure drop that occurs along the pipes? (a) Pipes 1 and 2
have the same pressure drop (b) Pipe 2 has the higher pressure drop
(c) Pipe 1 has the higher pressure...

1. Fluid flows at a rate of 2.0 L/s through a pipe with a
diameter of 10 cm. The pipe then goes up a height of 5m while
narrowing to a diameter of 5 cm. What is the pressure gradient (the
change in pressure) from the top to the bottom of the pipe? [hint:
draw this and label with P1, v1, P2, v2 etc.)
2. A hurricane wind blows across the top of a flat roof
measuring 12 m by...

In a vertical pipe conveying oil of sp. gr. 0.8, two
pressure gages have been installed at A & B where the diameters
are 16 cm and 8 cm respectively. A is 2 m above B. The pressure
readings have shown that the pressure at A is 9810 N/ m2 greater
than the pressure at B. Neglecting all losses, calculate the flow
rate (Q).

City water will be cooled in a heat exchanger by sea water
entering at 15°C. The outlet temperature of the sea water is 20°C.
City water will be recirculated to reduce water consumption. The
suction line of the pump has an inner diameter of 154 mm, is 22 m
long, and has two 90° bends and a hinged check valve. The pipe from
the pump to the heat exchanger has an inner diameter of 127 mm, is
140 m long,...
