(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I wanted to know if the flow rate and velocity would stay constant or change in nozzles 1,2 and 3 in a incompressible fluid flow through a rectangular duct. (Illustrated image in attachment).

Aim is to have the same amount of fluid flowing out of each of the nozzles.

2. Relevant equations

Flow Rate (Q) = Velocity (V) x Area (A)

3. The attempt at a solution

From what I know the sum of the flow rates within the nozzles equals the initial flow rate;

Qin = Q1 + Q2 + Q3

I am not fully sure about this.

Flow rate is dependent on velocity of the fluid flowing and the cross-sectional area. Therefore, when flow rate changes velocity would also change and vice versa.

Would the velocity be the same as the flow rate?

Vin = V1 + V2 + V3

Or velocity stays constant throughout?

I just need for this to be clarified or corrected so I am fully sure.
