Split pipe pressure

Trying to determine what happens when a pipe of splits off into two pipes which all have the same diameter. If the flow in the two pipes are the same and everyting else is the same.

Then is the pressure in pipe 1 equal to P2 + P3 or is it P1=P2=P3.

Searched around and haven't been able to determine a appropriate answer.

hi bellshom! :smile:

Bernoulli's equation applies along a streamline,

so if v (speed) and h (height) are the same, then pressure should also be the same :wink:
