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

Water is flowing at 1 m/s in a circular pipe. If the diameter of the pipe decreases to four-ninth its former value, what is the velocity fo the water downstream?

2. Relevant equations

AV=AV

3. The attempt at a solution[/b

(Area1)(Velocity1)=(Area2)(Velocity2)

then...

(A1)(1 m/s)=(4/9)A1(V2) ?

or

A1=(4/9)(V2)

Is that right what would u do next??
