Discussing a Bernoulli Problem

Hi, I need help understanding the effects of a stream which is flowing through a tube. I've prepared the following problem for discussion.

Using Bernoulli's equation and the steady flow momentum relation to calculate the net force on a tube from a dynamic pressure drop and a water flow stream flowing through ta tube.

See the attachment for further detail and calculate the following:

- V1 and V3
- Force pushing tube to the left
- Force pushing tube to the right
- Net force acting on the tube (x dir) and which way it is acting (right or left)
