Hi everyone,

I'm stuck on a fluid mechanics problem and maybe you could help me.

*As shown in figure, there is a two-dimensional converging channel, in which cross-section area varies linearly with*x

*. If*Q

*is the discharge, determine the flow acceleration along the x-axis (*A

_{1}

*,*A

_{2}

*and*L

*are known).*

I got for area: A(x)=(A

_{2}-A

_{1}/L).x+A

_{1}

I'm not sure what to do about Q, should Q=A.v be used? Any hint about how to get the velocity field?

Thanks in advance!
