Consider an apparatus design in which two tubes of different diameters are connected in parallel to each other.

The flow is steady and fully developd in both tubes. Do your analysis regarding

a)the governing differential equations for the case that in both tubes laminar flows occur.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Hello everyone,

For one pipe, we can simply use Reynolds transport theorem for a differential volume, and then get the related conservation of mass and momentum equations for 1 PIPE. However, when there are two pipes, how should I relate it? I could not solve it, hope you can help me. thanks for reading so far...

best regards
