    • Poster has been reminded to show their Attempt at a Solution in schoolwork threads
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    At a processing plant, olive oil of density 875 kg/m3 flows in a horizontal section of hose that constricts from a diameter of 2.92 cm to a diameter of 1.20 cm. Assume steady, ideal flow. What is the volume flow rate if the change in pressure between the two sections of hose is 5.10 kPa?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You've quoted the continuity equation, but that doesn't tell you anything about what happens to the pressure of the fluid.

    You need to find another equation which says something about the pressure of the fluid.
