attached is the problem. I use bernoulli's equation along a "streamline" from the inlet at point 1 to outlet at point 2. I do this to obtain the velocity V2. After working through it (simple algebra) I end up with 10.20 m/s ...seems right to me... however upon doing a conservation of mass analyses afterwards to get V3... I am getting 8.71 m/s this is nowhere on the multiple choice solution. This prof has been really really good at making sure the numbers are correct with very little round off error in the multiple choice options. It is possible that there is an error in the solutions but I think its more likely that I am doing something wrong.. Is it not correct to apply Bernoulli's equation to this example? Thanks for any help! this is driving me crazy!
