Question details

3. Water flowing in a steel pipe divides at a tee as shown in the diagram below. The characteristics of the pipe are summarized in the table. The flow rate in Pipe A is 2.0 ft/s. What is the flow rate in pipe B and C? Assume no friction or minor losses, and that there is no difference in elevations. Note: all pipe is Sch 40, use the diameter specified in the table. Also the tee is part of a larger piping system, so it is not open to the atmosphere. Actual Diameter (in) 6 Pressure (psi) 200 195 2 Pipe C Pipe B Pipe A
