Textbook Problem

A horizontal pipe narrows from a radius of 0.250 m to 0.100 m. If the speed of the water in the pipe is 1.00 m/s in the larger radius pipe, what is the speed in the smaller pipe?

To determine
The speed of water in the smaller pipe.

Explanation

Given info: The horizontal pipe narrows from a radius of 0.250m to radius of 0.100m and the speed of the water in the larger radius side is 1.00m/s .

Explanation: The continuity equation is used for the speed of the water in smaller pipe as A1v1=A2v2v2=A1v1/A2=[(πr12)v1]/πr22 .

The formula for the speed of water in the smaller pipe is,

v2=(r1r2)2v1

  • r1 is radius of larger pipe
