The 3.0 cm-diameter water line splits into two 1.0cm-diameter pipes. All pipes are circular and at the same elevation. At point A, the water speed is 2.0m/s and the gauge pressure is 50kPa. What is the gauge pressure at point B?(pointing toward one of the split pipes)

  1. Use the equation of continunity to find the flow in the smaller pipes.
    The, use Bernoulli's equation to solve for the pressure at B

  2. I tried this and it did not work :(
