Unfiltered olive oil must flow at a minimum speed of 3.0 m/s to prevent settling of debris in a pipe. The oil leaves a pump at a pressure of 85 kPa through a pipe of radius 9.4 mm. It then enters a horizontal pipe at atmospheric pressure. Ignore the effects of viscosity.

Part A: What is the speed of the oil as it leaves the pump if it flows at 3.0 m/s in the horizontal pipe?

Part B: What is the radius of the horizontal pipe?
