I. Identification (5 pts)

1.) It is a substance which deforms continuously when subjected to shear stress.

2.) The force exerted by the earth’s gravity upon a unit volume of the substance
3.) The ratio of mass density to the density of a standard fluid
4.) a measure of the fluid’s resistance to shear deformation by virtue of cohesion and
interaction between the fluid molecules.
5.) Flow in which the fluid particles rotate about any axis.

II. True or False (5pts)

1.) Steady flow is considered when flow parameters at any given instant remain the same at
different point in the direction of flow.
2.) All fluids are compressible under the application of an external force.
3.) Water is 100 times more compressible than steel, but it is ordinarily considered incompressible
4.) Hydraulic Grade Line is the graphical representation of the total potential energy flow
5.) Potential energy is the ability of the fluid mass to do work by virtue of its velocity.

Problem 1 (10 pts)

A horizontal pipe gradually reduces from 300 mm diameter section to 100 mm diameter section. The
pressure at the 300 mm section is 100 kPa and at the 100 mm section is 70 kPa. If the flow rate is 15
liters/sec of water, compute the head lost between the two sections.

Problem 2 (10 pts)

A diverging tube discharges water from a reservoir at a depth of 10 m below the water surface. The
diameter of the tube gradually increases from 150 mm at the throat to 225 mm at the outlet. Neglecting
friction, determine:
(1) The maximum possible rate of discharge through this tube.
(2) The corresponding pressure at the throat
