Problem 1: Water flows through a 1 cm diameter pipe with a speed of 1 m/s. What should be the diameter of the nozzle if water is to emerge at 2.1 m/s.

See Solution

Problem 2: Water is flowing smoothly through a closed pipe system. At one point the speed of water is 3.0 m/s. While at another point 3.0 m higher, the speed is 4.0 m/s. At the lower point, the pressure is 80 kpa. Find the pressure at the upper point.
