    Does T and P effect the mass flow rate of air through a pipe?

    Maybe I'll address the problem this way: Covert 50 SCFH (standard temp and pressure. 60F, 1atm) to lbs/hr (250F, 8atm). Assume an ideal gas.

    Does T and P effect the mass flow rate of air through a pipe?

    Right. It's ft^3/hr at STP (Standard temp and pressure) I'm still unsure. Wish I could see some experimental data.

    Does T and P effect the mass flow rate of air through a pipe?

    Hm, you could be correct. I still have a hard time with it. Mass flow rate is defined as density*velocity*cross sectional area of the pipe. The density will change at various temperatures and pressures. But if it is the total of moles coming out for a time, t, why would they call it...

    Does T and P effect the mass flow rate of air through a pipe?

    Hi all, I have a question regarding the mass flow rate of air through a pipe. On paper, it looks like temperature and pressure effect the mass flow rate but I can't rationalize it in my head. Here's what I got: Goal: Calculate the actual mass flow rate of lets say, CH4 through a...

    Caculation of force exerted by water

    Hi, I was standing in a river and I'm curious how much force it was exerting on my leg. I'm not sure how to do this calculation. Here's what I know: F=ma if the final velocity is zero, F=mv/t I'll assuming I was standing in 1ft of water, my leg is 36in^2, and the water is traveling...
