Homework Help: Pressure incr/decr with diameter

  1. May 17, 2010 #1
    If a pipe separates into 2 pipes, one with 1 m diameter (pipe A), and the other 0.5 m diameter (pipe B)... which tube has the higher pressure.

    From the continuity equation, we know that velocity decreases as area increases. So I know that pipe A has lesser velocity than pipe B.

    And now using Bernoulli's equation what do you find?
