Finding Net Pressure force in a pipe

  1. Oct 19, 2007 #1
    I have a pipe that has an inlet (x-direction) and outlet (y-direction) with water flowing through it. I want to find net pressure force in x-direction (at the inlet)

    I have momentum flux and areas of the inlet and outlet.

    How can I find the net pressure force acting on the inlet? I don't know the pressure acting on the inlet, but I know the area.
