Volume Integral Relations for a Control

## 1. The pipe flow in (Fig 1) fills a cylindrical tank as shown. At time

t = 0, the water depth in the tank is 30 cm. Estimate the time required to fill the remainder of the tank.

## 2. Three pipes steadily deliver water at 20C to a large exit pipe

in( Fig 2 ) The velocity V2 = 5 m/s, and the exit flow rate Q4 = 120 m3/h. Find (a) V1; (b) V3; and (c) V4 if it is known that increasing Q3 by 20% would increase Q4 by 10%.

## 3. The open tank in the figure contains water at 20C. For

incompressible flow, (a) derive an analytic expression for dh/dt in terms of (Q1, Q2, Q3). (b) If h is constant ,determine V2 for the given data if V1 = 3 m/s and Q3 = 0.01 m3/s.

4. Water at 20C flows steadily through the piping junction in Fig. 4, entering section 1 at 20 gal/min. The average velocity at section 2 is 2.5 m/s. A portion of the flow is diverted through the showerhead, which contains 100 holes of 1-mm diameter. Assuming

uniform shower flow, estimate the exit velocity from the showerhead jets.

5-The water tank in Fig. 5 stands on a frictionless cart and feeds a jet of diameter 4 cm and velocity 8 m/s, which is deflected 60 by a vane. Compute the tension in the supporting cable.

6-Water at 20C exits to the standard sea-level atmosphere through the split nozzle in Fig. P3.62. Duct areas are A1 _ 0.02 m2 and A2 _ A3 _ 0.008 m2. If p1 _ 135 kPa (absolute) and the flow rate is Q2 _ Q3 _ 275 m3/h, compute the force on the flange bolts at section 1.

7- When the pump in Fig. 8 draws 220 m3/h of water at 20C from the reservoir, the total friction head loss is 5 m. The flow discharges through a nozzle to the atmosphere. Estimate the pump power in kW delivered to the water.

8- The pump-turbine system in Fig. 9 draws water from the upper reservoir in the daytime to produce power for a city. At night, it pumps water from

10- The water jet in Fig. 11strikes normal to a fixed plate. Neglect gravity and friction, and compute the force F in newtons required to hold the plate fixed.

12-A 10-cm-diameter hose maintained at a pressure of 1600 kPa provides water from a tanker to a fire. There is a nozzle at the end of the hose that reduces the diameter to 2.5 cm. Estimate the force that the water exerts on the nozzle. The losses can be neglected in a short nozzle.

1 ) A 12 mm diameter water pipe is 60 m long and delivers water at 5 lit/min at 20C. What fraction of this pipe is taken up by the entrance region? 2) An oil with =900 kg/m3 and =0.0002 m2/s flows upward through an inclined pipe as shown in the following Fig. The pressure and elevation are known at sections 1 and 2, 10 m apart. Assuming steady laminar flow, (a) verify that the flow is up, (b) compute hf between 1 and 2, and compute (c) Q, (d) V, and (e) Red. Is the flow really laminar?

3) Oil, with =900 kg/m3 and =0.00001 m2/s, flows at 0.2 m3/s through 500 m of 200-mm diameter cast-iron pipe.
