Homework Help: Bent pipe

  1. Apr 6, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    this is a pipe where the water flow from low to high. assuming no friction loss (volume rate are constant at both inlet and outlet) , is the pressure at inlet = pressure at outlet ? p/s : inlet and inlet diameter are same

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    my question is no .... because the outlet is somehow higher than inlet . can someone explain , please?
