Oil (sp. gr.= 0.8) flows smoothly through the circular reducing section shown at 3 ft^3/s. If the entering and leaving velocity profiles are uniform, estimate the force which must be applied to the reducer to hold it in place.

When Fluid is entering the pipe: P= 50 psig

Diameter of the pipe= 12 in.

Fluid leaving the pipe: P= 5 psig

Diameter of the pipe= 2.5 in.
