The volumetric fl ow rate of beer fl owing in a pipe is 1.8 L/s. The inside diameter of the pipe is 3 cm. The density of beer is 1100 kg/m 3 . Calculate the average velocity of beer and its mass fl ow rate in kg/s. What is the mass fl ow rate? If another pipe with a diameter of 1.5 cm is used, what will be the velocity for the same volumetric fl ow rate?

Given
Pipe diameter _ 3 cm _ 0.03 m Volumetric fl ow rate _ 1.8 L/s _ 0.0018 m 3 /s Density _ 1100 kg/m3

Approach
First, we will calculate velocity, u, from the given volumetric fl ow rate using Equation (2.17). Then we will use Equation (2.15) to obtain mass fl ow rate.

Water at 30_C is being pumped through a 30 m section of 2.5 cm diameter steel pipe at a mass fl ow rate of 2 kg/s. Compute the pressure loss due to friction in the pipe section.

Given
Density ( ) _ 995.7 kg/m3 , from Table A.4.1 Viscosity ( ) _ 792.377 _ 10 _ 6 Pa s, from Table A.4.1 Length ( L ) of pipe _ 30 m Diameter ( D ) of pipe _ 2.5 cm _ 0.025 m M ass fl ow rate ( m_ ) _ 2 kg/s

Approach
The pressure drop due to friction is computed using Equation (2.51) with the information given. Equation (2.51) requires knowledge of the friction factor f as obtained from Figure 2.16 . Figure 2.16 can be used once the turbulence ( N Re ) and relative roughness ( / D) values have been determined.
