1. Homework Statement

air is flowing horizontally at a speed of 100 mph through a duct 4 square feet in cross section. the duct gradually narrows down to a throat section. if a U-tube shows a difference in pressure between the throat and main sections of 7 inch of water, what is the cross sectional area of the throat? (assume that the air is incompressible and has a density of 0.002378 slug per cubic feet)

For a horizontal pipe what is Bernoulli's equation reduced to?

When you get that formula you can find the velocity leaving the throat section.

Do you know the equation of continuity?
