Hi everyone. Im new here so i dont know how this place works. I got a problem:: A horizontal bend in a pipeline conveys water at a discharge at 1000l/s gradually reduces from 600mm to 300mm and deflects the flow through an angle of 60 degrees. At the larger end the pressure is 170000N/m^2. Determine the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on the bend. I can do this question if it only had one length(600 or 300). Not sure what to do now because of the gradual decrease. help?
