Question

In a building mechanical system, water at 75˚C is flowing through 1 inch Type K Copper tubing. Determine the largest flow rate (Q), in litres/minute that will result in laminar flow.

Answer #1

Here ,In a building mechanical system we have,

- 1 Inch type K copper tubing,for which

Outside diameter,Do = 1.125 in

Inside diameter,Di = 0.995 in

Cross sectional area of bore, A = 0.778 in²

- Water at 75 o C, We have

Density of water,ρ = 60.8556 lbm/ft³

Viscosity of water, μ = (0.000007863) × 32.14) lbm.s/ft²

μ= 2.527×10-4 lbm.s/ft²

Now,As it has heen asked to calculate the maximum discharge resulting a laminar flow,thus we have to find the maximum velocity for which the flow remain laminar,i.e When Reynolds number equals to 2000.

Thus, Maximum Discharge is given by,

Nitrogen is fed from a high pressure cylinder, through 1/4 inch
ID stainless steel tubing, to an experimental unit. The line
ruptures at a point 10 ft from the cylinder. If the pressure of the
nitrogen in the cylinder is 2200 psig and the temperature is
70°C
a) Use the ideal gas law to calculate the density of gas in the
tank
b) What is the mass flow rate of the gas through the line?
c) Is the flow choked?...

Problem #1
Saturated steam at 300°C is used to heat a counter-currently
flowing stream of methanol vapor from 65°C to 260°C in an adiabatic
heat exchanger. The flow rate of the methanol is 5500 standard
liters per minute (at STP), and the steam condenses and leaves the
heat exchanger as liquid water at 90°C.
a) Draw a diagram of the process.
b) Calculate the required flow rate of the entering steam in
m3/min.
c) Calculate the rate of heat transfer...

7. A) Find the depth of water flowing through a triangular
channel having a bed slope of 1 in 3500 and side slope of 1:1, when
it carries 1.2 m3/s. Take Manning’s Coefficient N = 0.014
B) For a most economical trapezoidal section of side slope 2h: 5V,
bed slope of 1 in 2000 and C = 50. Find the rate of flow if the
bottom width of the channel is 5 m.
