### Difficulty in understanding the trigonometry in applying the momentum equation for a stream tube

As far as I can understand the sum of the applied forces is the component of the weight of the fluid in the s direction and pressure forces. Looking at the diagram ...

### Theory of rotationally symmetric air cushion vehicle

I am trying to develop a theory for this situation: A small blown-up balloon is attached to the center of a compact disc; you let it float as the balloon discharges. Simplifying assumptions: ...

### Should I pursue airfoils with higher or lower peaks (I am doing wind power in science olympiad and am designing a mini wind turbine)?

I am a beginner in wind power, but I know the basics. The Bernoulli effect: Air travelling over the curved edge travels more distance over the same amount of time than the straight side. Due to this, ...

### Velocity value in a pipe junction when we're applying the energy equation

I'm trying to understand how to apply the energy equation at a junction of 3 pipes. For example, when we are considering points A and D, should we consider that velocity at point D just before the ...

### What happens when electrolytic process rotameters are swapped for a much bigger one?

electrolytic process rotameter were swapped for much bigger rotameters. Inlet pipes are the still the same. What effect does the bigger rotameter have in the concentration of catholyte in the cell?

### Can a fluid have more or less static pressure than atmospheric pressure in atmosphere?

We assume static pressure of a fluid coming out of a pipe or nozzle of gas turbine with high temperature and velocity is equal to atmospheric pressure, which confuses me for some point. Does it mean ...

### Find pressure, given 2 velocities at open end of pipe and inside pipe, at different elevations

There is a tube travelling horizontally, 8m below the ground, with a diameter 15cm. It then turns upwards and at a height of 1.75m above the ground, it shoots water out with a velocity 32 m/s. Find ...

### How to quantify a misty-ness of a spray?

Picture1 source: Picture2 source: Picture3 source: The above are three spray models. The latter one is fuel injector spray. Consider I have a closed container which I can increase its pressure by any ...

### Incompressible Fluid Flow in horizontal pipe segment which encounters tilted pipe segment - Continuity Equation

Say that we have water flowing horizontally in a pipe of constant diameter. The continuity equation for incompressible fluids, which is a statement of mass conservation, guarantees that the flow rate ...

### Routing the flow from an axial "box" fan

I have a project where I need to generate a certain flow rate to levitate a ping pong ball using the Bernoulli principle. From some rough calculations, I found that it would take about 30 CFM through ...

### Increasing air velocity through F1 car diffuser

I am looking into F1 car aerodynamics for a course that I am taking. I understand that because of Bernoulli's law, when the velocity increases, the pressure decreases, which is good for F1 cars if we ...

### Pressure variation through reduction (Bernoulli) and pipe wall design

Let's say I have a pipe followed by a reduction and then another smaller diameter pipe continues. Using conservation of mass, the flow through the smaller diameter pipe will have higher velocity. If I ...

### Is Bernoulli’s equation applicable for systems with pumps?

Please have patience with me as I have not looked at this sort of theory in many years (I am also very new to StackExchange). A question asks the following: A sloping swimming pool two-thirds full of ...

### Can I dismiss wind loads for this solar panel configuration?

I asked this question before in the Physics Stack Exchange, but it was closed because it was considered being about engineering. That is why I am asking it here. I am planning to install some solar ...

### Help calculating discharge rate from a reservoir as the water level drops?

I could do with some help calculating the discharge rate from a reservoir and factoring in how that flow will decrease as the head of water decreases. The information I have is: Maximum height of ...

### Venturi Duct flow

When water flows through the converging side of a Venturi, why is it that the total head (experimental and calculated) is not constant? Could it be due to losses? Also, why was it that a lot more ...

### If a gas is pushed through a widening section of a pipe with a piston, will the pressure increase?

Imagine I have a section of pipe that increases in cross-section at some point. If the gas in the pipe before this section is being displaced with a piston, will the gas increase its pressure and ...
