Question

This problem is (6.30) from a book  "Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics An Integrated Approach by M. Scott Shell" help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose6.30. A fireman is using a high-pressure stream of water from a hose to combat a raging forest fire. At one end, the hose has an inside diameter of d connected to a high-pressure water reservoir at P1 300 psi. At the other end is a nozzle with diameter d2 3 cm that is exposed to atmospheric pressure P2= 1 atm To a good approximation, flowing water in this process can be modeled as having a 5 cm and is 3 constant temperature and constant mass density p = 1 g/cm = 1,000 kg/m2. incompressible liquid, the following equation well describes Moreover, for an isothermal enthalpy changes: Δh xυΔΡ where v is the volume per mole or molecule (depending (a) How much faster is the velocity of the exiting on the basis of h) water at the nozzle than that of factor (e.g., u2= the entering stream at the reservoir? Express your answer as a 1.5 u1). (b) If the hose is well insulated, find the exit velocity of the stream of water, in m/s. (c) Find the exit volumetric flow rate of water, in gal/s.
