Flow rate through an obstruction

  1. Jan 30, 2012 #1
    I need help solving a problem involving a water washing system. I have a pipe with (48) 1/16" holes drilled around it. This pipe is inserted into a slightly larger T-Connector and sealed. the top of the connector is attach to a water hose. The water from the hose flows at approx. 10 gpm and 50 psi. I need to know the Flow rate and pressure of the water as it exits the 1/16" holes in the inner pipe.
    as this is a school project i am not allowed to build a prototype to do this analysis. Please can some one help me out
