Output Flow Calculation

  1. Sep 27, 2007 #1
    An entire system is filled with liquid.
    At the top (30 feet) is a 2 gallon container,
    connected to a tube (1.25" ID) for 14 feet,
    connected to a tube (1.00" ID) for 10 feet,
    then split with tees to 8 valves (.75" ID) and tubing (1.00" ID).

    =O=O=O=O= valves

    (sorry, the diagram on paper looks a lot better)

    What is the flow rate at one opening if all valves are opened?
    what is the flow rate at one opening is one valve is opened?
