A venturi meter is a device for measuring the speed of a fluid within a pipe. The drawing shows a gas flowing at a speed v2 through a horizontal section of pipe whose cross-sectional area A2 = 0.0600 m2. The gas has a density of ρ = 1.60 kg/m3. The Venturi meter has a cross-sectional area of A1 = 0.0300 m2 and has been substituted for a section of the larger pipe. The pressure difference between the two sections is P2 - P1 = 150 Pa.

(a) Find the speed v2 of the gas in the larger original pipe.

m/s

(b) Find the volume flow rate Q of the gas.

m3/s
