Alcohol flows smoothly through a horizontal pipe that tapers in cross-sectional area from A1 = 41.9 cm2 to A2= A1/3. The pressure difference Δp between the wide and the narrow sections of the pipe is 11.1 kPa. What is the volume flow rate ΔV/Δt of the alcohol? The density of the alcohol is ρ = 838 kg/m3. Hint: Treat as an ideal fluid. You will need both the conservation of mass properties and the conservation of energy properties.
