    The question is rather unclear, but I believe the diagram is the plan view, i.e. looking from above. (It doesn't say "45 degrees to the horizontal".)

    No, I'm saying that the flow is all at the same horizontal level. Reread what I posted before.

    It's the plan view, i.e. you are looking down onto the pipe from above. The z direction is out of the page. The flow is all on one horizontal level.

    If it were a side view, that would be true.
