Homework Help: Two pipes of water flowing into one another

  1. Sep 8, 2006 #1
    If you have two pipes of water flowing directly into one another and both are at 5psi and at the point where they interact with each other there is a tube like a tee. where the fluid can escape. Will the two force of water increase the total pressure and the force of the water leaving the tee.

    If one has two inlets and one outlet, the outlet pressure must be less than the inlet pressure. Liquids flow down the pressure gradient.
