An ideal fluid flows through a pipe with radius R with flow speed v. If the pipe splits up into three separate paths, each with radius (R/2), what is the flow speed through each of the paths?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would we just use the flow rate equation giving a flow speed of 4v in each of the paths? Does the fact that it split up into three have anything to do with it?
