Homework Help: Fluid Dynamics

  1. May 18, 2010 #1
    I'm no good with fluid dynamics. I really am willing to improve can someone point me to what equation I should use for this question. I assume its bernoullis equation? I've drawn a diagram of how I see the pipe.

    To make things worse I haven't done fluids in quite a while.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    3. The attempt at a solution


    Please can someone give a hint on where I should start.

    Thank you!

    Start here:

    Volumetric Flow = Velocity X Area

    Then use Bernoulli.
