Homework Statement



A pipe of 150mm bore is delivering water at a rate of 7500 liter/min at a pressure of 820 kPa. It connects via a horizontal, gradually expanding pipe, to a main of 300mm diameter. calculate the fluid velocities both in the main body of the pipe and at the outlet.

Homework Equations



m= p1A1v1 = p2A2V2


The Attempt at a Solution



Is the equation above correct to use for this problem. Thanks in advance.
