# Pressure Change Problem for Descending Vertical Pipe

Water is descending in a vertical pipe of diameter 8 cm. At a certain level the water flows into a smaller pipe of diameter 1.2 cm. At a certain instant the gauge pressure of the water at a point 80 cm above the narrowing point is 86.6 kPa and the water there is moving at 94 cm/s. What is the gauge pressure of the water just above the narrowing point? What is the pressure change across the narrowing point?
