Homework Statement


Was flicking through a textbook and decided to give a question a try.

Flow through a converging diverging nozzle, determine pressure at throat picture attached.
Pressure at inlet = 50cm head, 4905PA
inlet dia = 2cm
throat dia = 1 cm
density of water = 1000kg/m^3
[/B]


Homework Equations


Bernoullis equation[/B]


The Attempt at a Solution


Cant find pressure at throat as both velocities are unknown,
Area of inlet = 3.142cm^2
area of throat = 0.785 cm^2.
We could make the outlet atmospheric, answer was around 7mH2o head.[/B]

This is generally not a good idea, unless you have studied all the material covered up to that point thoroughly.

Flow through a converging diverging nozzle, determine pressure at throat picture attached.
Pressure at inlet = 50cm head, 4905PA
inlet dia = 2cm
throat dia = 1 cm
density of water = 1000kg/m^3

What you also need here, to find the inlet velocity, is known as Torricelli's Law:

That's why you must study the figures included with the problem.
