1. ### Water flowing out of a tank through a hole

I assume the water to start flowing from rest at position 1, hence ##v_1 = 0##. Applying the continuity equation, ##A_1 v_1 = A_2 v_2##, we find the (wrong) result that the velocity at position 2 is ##v_2 = 0## also! (We assume that ##A_2## is small but finite) Hence, to answer the question...
2. ### I Different answers from equation of continuity and Bernoulli

Hi there, So I was doing the dishes this morning using a sink wand hat can toggle between different flow speeds. The way that I've always thought of this working is using the equation of continuity: Volume flow rate: = Area*velocity Pressing a button on the wand decreases the cross-sectional...
3. ### Bernoulli's Equation, Find gauge pressure at 2nd point

Homework Statement At a certain point in a pipeline, the velocity is 1 m/s and the gauge pressure is 3 x 105 N/m2. Find the gauge pressure at a second point in the line 20 m lower than the first if the cross-section at the second point is one half that at the first. The liquid in the pipe is...
4. ### B Would the velocity of a fluid increase right after exiting a pipe into open air?

If you have an non-viscous incompressible fluid flowing in a pipe whose static pressure is higher than atmospheric pressure, then after exits the pipe will the dynamic pressure increase? The static pressure of the fluid right after exiting should decrease because it should be equal to the...
5. ### Find velocity of air using Bernoulli principle

Homework Statement A horizontal stream of air is blown just above the open end of the hares apparatus with an initial speed "V". The density of air is 1.2 kgm-3.Then the water column rises to 6 cm in the respective limb.Density of water is 103 kgm-3 Using Bernoulli`s principle find "V"...
6. ### I Velocity of liquid from bottom pinhole of closed container

What I know: Below link is about Torricelli's law. Velocity of liquid coming out of bottom of the tank i.e comes after using Bernoulli's equation square root of (2*g*h*) where "h" is height of fluid in the container and "g" is acceleration due to gravity...

In nature, gradient is always required for flow; whether it is temperature gradient for heat transfer or pressure difference for fluid flow. There is a case of Venturimeter in which we have throat section. After throat there is a divergent section. How could flow even happen in that adverse...
8. ### An Open Cylindrical Tank of Acid...

Homework Statement An open cylindrical tank of acid rests at the edge of a table 2.20\cdot 10^0\ m above the floor of the chemistry lab. If this tank springs a small hole in the side at its base, how far from the foot of the table will the acid hit the floor if the acid in the tank is...
9. ### Bernoulli's Equation & Equation of Continuity

Hi all, I'm considering an fluids example that's giving me an apparent contradiction when I consider it from the perspective of Bernoulli's Equation vs. the Equation of Continuity. What I'm thinking of is the common observation that putting one's thumb over a garden hose results in an increase...
10. ### Mis-using Bernoulli's equation

Homework Statement An incompressible heated gas of constant temperature and pressure flows along an infinitely long tube at an unspecified velocity v1; a pressure of P1; and a density of p1 into an unheated open area of infinite volume containing the same gas at a lower pressure of P2; a...
11. ### Pressure and Flow Rate in a Tank

Homework Statement A tank of cross-sectional area A is initially filled with fluid of density ρ and viscosity μ to height hi. The pressure above the fluid in the tank is atmospheric, Patm. At the base of the tank there are two pipes, which are both open to teh atmosphere, such that fluid...
12. ### Continuity and Bernoulli's equation in air

Hi, I'm trying to understand vortex shedding and how the Karman vortex street occurs when air flows around a cylindrical object, so far it's going OK but then I came across this part of the explanation which leaves me confused: "Looking at the figure above, the formation of the separation...
13. ### Can I assume that the velocity is the same?

Homework Statement Calculate "H" Homework Equations Bernoulli Manometry The Attempt at a Solution I have calculated that Q=0.06723 m^3 /s If I apply Bernoulli in the surface of the tank A and in out of the pipe, I have: H =(velocity in the final part of the pipe^2)/(2g). I have assumed that...
14. ### Bernoulli, Fluid Dynamics, and ships

Homework Statement The Plimsoll line is a line marked on the side all ships that effectively indicates the safe maximum load the ship can carry in that type of water at that temperature. You have been asked to stand on the dock and collect the tickets of the passengers boarding a cruise ship...
15. ### 101 in air flow dynamics please?

Hi everyone, I've got a newbie question which is probably more complex than I imagine so please bare with me. As a small DIY project I've trying to build a small exhaust filter system (A) for another device that produces undesirable fumes (B). I'm trying to work out if an axial fan (generates...
