Water is flowing through a 2-inch diameter pipe with a velocity of 3 ft/s.

Part A

What is the kinetic energy of the water in (ft)(lbf)/(lbm)? (lbf) pound force (lbm) pound mass

Part B

What is the flow rate in gal/min?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 5:26pmA. find area of pipe (PI*r^2).

volume water= area*velocity (watch units, I recommend covert ara to ft^2)

mass water=volumewater*densitywater

KE=1/2 m v^2

b. just convert wha tyou have given.
