# A cast-iron pipe system consists of a 500-ft section of water pipe, after which the flow branches into two 300-ft sections. The two branches then meet in a final 250-ft section. Minor losses may be neglected. All sections are 1.5-in nominal diameter, except for one of the two branches, which is 1- in nominal diameter. If the applied pressure difference is 100 psi, find the overall flow rate and the flow rate in each of the two branches. please attach the excel sheet and formula used
