Water at a gauge pressure of P = 3.2 atm at street level flows into an office building at a speed of 0.90 m/s through a pipe 5.2 cm in diameter. The pipe tapers down to 2.6 cm in diameter by the top floor, 16 m above (Figure 1). Assume no branch pipes and ignore viscosity.

Part A: Calculate the flow velocity in the pipe on the top floor. Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

Part B: Calculate the gauge pressure in the pipe on the top floor. Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.
