Question: 4 fluid of density flows through an expanding diffuser...

Question details

4. Fluid of density ρ flows through an expanding diffuser, which expands from area A1 to A2. The fluid enters at gauge pressure P1 with a velocity U1 and exits into atmosphere with a velocity of U2 as shown in the figure. Neglect gravity and viscous force. Find the force required in terms of A1, A2 and P1 to hold the diffuser in place.
