Example 5.12 Water flows through a horizontal, 180° pipe bend. The
flow cross-sectional area is constant at a value of 0.1 ft2 through the bend.
The flow velocity everywhere in the bend is axial and 50 ft/s/ The
absolute pressures at the entrance and exit of the bend are 30 psia and 24
psia, respectively. Calculate the horizontal (x and y) components of the
anchoring force required to hold the bend in place.
Example 5.13 Air flows steadily between two cross sections in a
long, straight portion of 4-in. inside diameter pipe as indicated in
Figure, where the uniformly distributed temperature and pressure at
each cross section are given. If the average air velocity at section (2)
is 1000 ft/s, we found in Example 5.2 that the average air velocity at
section (1) must be 219 ft/s. Assuming uniform velocity
distributions at sections (1) and (2), determine the frictional force
exerted by the pipe wall on the air flow between sections (1) and
(2).

Example 5.15 A static thrust stand as sketched in Figure is to be
designed for testing a jet engine. The following conditions are
known for a typical test: Intake air velocity = 200 m/s; exhaust gas
velocity = 500 m/s; intake cross-sectional area = 1 m2; intake static
pressure = -22.5 kPa = 78.5 kPa (abs); intake static temperature
= 268 K; exhaust static pressure = 0 kPa = 101 kPa (abs).
Estimate the nominal thrust for which to design.
Linear Momentum Equation for a Moving CV

For a constant control volume velocity, Vcv and steady flow:

Example 5.17 A vane on wheels moves with constant velocity V0 when a
stream of water having a nozzle exit velocity of V1 is turned 45° by the vane
as indicated in Figure (a). Note that this is the same moving vane considered
in Section 4.4.6 earlier. Determine the magnitude and direction of the force,
F, exerted by the stream of water on the vane surface. The speed of the water
jet leaving the nozzle is 100 ft/s, and the vane is moving to the right with a
constant speed of 20 ft/s.
