I have a question regarding a pipe-network:
Pressure A > B diameters of the outside pipes are bigger than the pipe with the massflow m2,m3
The brown rectangle is a valve (the diameter of the valve is smaller than the pipe-diameter). I know from the continuity equation, that the volume flow rate in a pipe is constant. But how is that relation within a network? Is:
massflow: m2 < m3(through the valve)? massflow m1 < m2 (smaller diameter)?
