Question

Water flows through a horiztonal pipe at a rate of 90
ft^{3}/min. A pressure gauge placed on a 3.3 inch diameter
section of the pipe reads 17 psi. What is the gauge pressure in a
section of pipe where the diameter is 5.4 inches?

Pressure = __________psi

Answer #1

**Answer:**

**Given:**

P1 = 17 psi = 117211 Pa

d1 =3.3 inch = 0.08382 m

d2 = 5.4 inch = 0.13716 m

Volume flow rate = 90 ft^3/min = 0.042475 m^3/s

**solution:**

**_______________________________________________________**

From equation of continuity V/t = A1v1 = A2v2

A = pi*d^2/4

(3.14* 0.08382*0.08382/4)*v1 = 0.042475

v1 = 7.713 m/s

(3.14* 0.13716*0.13716/4)*v2 = 0.042475

v2 = 2.876 m/s

density of water rho p =1000 kg/m^3

from Bernoulis principle

P1 +(1/2)pv1^2 =P2+(1/2)dv2^2

117211 +(0.5*1000*7.713*7.713) = P2 +(0.5*1000*2.876*2.876)

P2 =142820.497 Pa

**P2 = 20.714 psi**

Water flows through a horiztonal pipe at a rate of 94 ft3/min. A
pressure gauge placed on a 3.5 inch diameter section of the pipe
reads 15 psi. What is the gauge pressure in a section of pipe where
the diameter is 5.4 inches?

Water flows through a horiztonal pipe at a rate of 98
ft3/min. A pressure gauge placed on a 3 inch diameter
section of the pipe reads 16 psi. What is the gauge pressure in a
section of pipe where the diameter is 5.2 inches?
(in psi)

Water flows through a horizontal pipe at a rate of 2.3 m3/s. A
pressure gauge placed on a 40 cm diameter section of the pipe reads
210.3 kPa. What is the gauge pressure in a section of pipe where
the diameter is constricted to 35 cm and what has caused this
change in pressure?

1.Water flows through a horizontal pipe at a rate of 39 gpm (1
ft3 =
7.48 gal). What is the velocity in the larger opening of the pipe
that reduces from 5.4 to 2.4 inches in diameter?
Larger Pipe Velocity = ft/s
2. What must be the diameter of a hose if it is to deliver 7
liters of oil in 1.2 minutes with an exit velocity of 2
m/s?
Pipe Diameter = milimeters

Water flows at a rate of 30 L/min through a horizontal
7.0-cm-diameter pipe under a pressure of 80 Pa. At one point,
calcium deposits reduce the cross-sectional area of the pipe to 20
cm^2. What is the pressure at this point? Consider the water to be
an ideal fluid.

Water at a gauge pressure of P = 3.4 atm at street level flows
into an office building at a speed of 0.64 m/s through a pipe 5.4
cm in diameter. The pipe tapers down to 2.8 cm in diameter by the
top floor, 16 m above (Figure 1). Assume no branch pipes and ignore
viscosity.
Calculate the flow velocity in the pipe on the top floor.
Calculate the gauge pressure in the pipe on the top floor.

In the figure, water flows through a horizontal pipe and then
out into the atmosphere at a speed v1 = 16.0
m/s. The diameters of the left and right sections of the pipe are
4.70 cm and 3.20 cm. (a) What volume of water
flows into the atmosphere during a 10 min period? In the left
section of the pipe, what are (b) the speed
v2 and (c) the gauge
pressure?

In the figure, water flows through a horizontal pipe and then
out into the atmosphere at a speed v1 = 15.0 m/s. The diameters of
the left and right sections of the pipe are 4.70 cm and 3.20 cm.
(a) What volume of water flows into the atmosphere during a 10 min
period? In the left section of the pipe, what are (b) the speed v2
and (c) the gauge pressure?

Given: The viscosity is negligible. Atmospheric pressure is
101300 Pa. Water flows at speed of 5.9 m/s through a horizontal
pipe of diameter 3.3 cm. The gauge pressure P1 of the water in the
pipe is 1.6 atm. A short segment of the pipe is constricted to a
smaller diameter of 2.4 cm.
What is the gauge pressure of the water flowing through the
constricted segment? Answer in units of atm.

Water flows upward and then is discharged to the right through a
3.00 inch diameter pipe elbow, at a steady flow rate of 1.00 cubic
foot per second, and the gage pressure at the entrance to the elbow
is 30.0 psi. What vertical and horizontal force is necessary to
hold the elbow stationary, neglecting any required torque.
