Pressure and Velocity Change When Merging two tubes

  1. Dec 3, 2015 #1
    Hello, I have a question about the pressure and velocity change when merging two tubes that have the exact same pressure, velocity, and diameter. I've attached an image to give you guys a visualization. Say the three tubes are all laying flat on the ground, so there's no height change.

    What I'm trying to figure out is what the velocity and the pressure of the third tube.
    I calculate that the density of the first two tubes would be 103.4 kg/m^3, would this value double in the third tube? And how would this effect the velocity and pressure?
    Any information helps
