Problem 2 This Problem May Be Solved By Hand A Pipe With Diameter Di = 1 In. Is Connected To A Pipe

Problem 2 This problem may be solved by hand A pipe with diameter Di = 1 in. is connected to a pipe with diameter D= 2 in creating the sudden expansion shown below. Water (p = 1000 kg/m) flows through the expansion at steady state. Pressure at the inlet of the pipe is R = 60 kPa gauge. Note that we can assume is constant everywhere along the red dashed line on the figure (the entrance of the expansion). The fluid velocity at the inlet of the expansion is vi = 10 m/s. You may assume velocity profiles at the inlet and the outlet are uniform. P, everywhere along the redine DPY (b) Sketch of the expansion (with poor attempts at drawing streamlines) (a) 1/2 in. to 3/4 in. adapter. Home depot. 1. Calculate the pressure (in Pa) at location 2, downstream of the expansion.
