    The rate of flow in the pipe system is 0.05 m^3s. The pressure at point 1 is measure to be 260kpa. all the pipes are galvanized iron with roughness value of 0.15 mm. Determine the pressure at point 2. take the loss of coefficient for the sudden contraction as 0.05 and v= 1.141x10^-6 m^2/s

    Diameter pt1: 150mm
    Length pt1: 300m

    Diameter between pt1 and pt2: 270mm
