How do you find the Flow Rate in an expanding pipe?
In this video, we dive in to an FE Exam Practice Problem in the subject of FLUID MECHANICS, specifically revolving around the CONTINUITY EQUATION and the FLOW RATE in a pipe with an expanding diameter.
What is the CONTINUITY EQUATION?
At the most fundamental level, the continuity equation essentially states that the rate at which mass enters a system is equal to the rate at which mass leaves the system…plus the accumulation of mass within the system.
We can get more fancy than that, but to keep it simple, the CONTINUITY EQUATION is just stating that when a fluid is in motion, it must move in such a way that mass is conserved.
