Calculate the velocity of water coming out of a double-entry pipe

If we know the volumetric flow rates of the water going into the two branches, then what would be the velocity of the water coming out?

    noone is correct you should apply floyds equations to calculate the velocity, you cannot solve that with the parameters they gave to us.

  2. engineering says:

    quantity water =area*velocity

    Q=AV which yields 247.6 in/s

    Elizabeth is correct.

    Richard, v1a1 = 7000 in^3 = v2a2. You just divide 7000 by A2 to get v2. A2 = 9*pi
