fluid mechanics question help!?

Homework Statement



Air flows through a horizontal duct of dimensions 300 x 300 mm with a velocity of 15 m/s. At position (1) in the duct a water guage (water manometer) registers a hieght of 215mm. The duct bends downwards and reduces in size to 240 x 240 mm, dropping a distance of 12 m to position (2). the specific volume of the air is 0.85 m^3 / kg and this may be taken as constant. Determine:

a) volume flow rate and mass flow rate.
b) pressure at (1) in kPa
c) The Velocity at (2)
d) pressure at (2) in kPa (guage) and mm water guage if losses are neglected.
e) pressure at (2) in kPa (guage and mm water guage if losses are 10% of the total head at (1) and elevation (2) is used as datum


Homework Equations

I'm not surprised that you're struggling. Are you sure that the water gauge at point 1 reads 215 m? That's a pretty large water gauge, equal to the height of a 70 story building. BTW, atmospheric pressure is about 10 m W.G.

You've got to show some effort to get help from PFers. That's the rules. "I'm struggling" isn't good enough.
