Problem Statement-

Given the volumes of two different chemicals; One viscous and one non-viscous. Find the optimal diameter of the tube as well as the orfice that the two chemicals exit from to fill up a drum.

Known-

volume of the two chemicals
density of the two chemicals
viscosity of the two chemicals
Length of the individual tubes
time that it takes to move both chemicals

Unknown-

Pressure required to move both chemicals at that given time
Velocity it takes to move the chemicals
Friction Factor
Reynolds number

I used some equations straight from the text book, but I am getting really odd numbers. Any suggestions are helpful. Even if it's just an equation check.

Thanks
