A viscous fluid is moving through a flow pipe. The flow is 2x10 to the -3 m3/s. Now, consider another tube with a fluid twice the viscosity which is moving in a pipe whose length is 3 times the original with a radius 1.5 times the original. The pressure difference across this new pipe is 1/3 that of the original. What is the flow in the new pipe?

What will happen to the flow in either pipe if the temperature is increased?

#### Solution Preview

Because, discharge through a pipe (Q) is given by the formula:
Q = pi*P*r^4/(8*n*l)
where,
P: pressure difference across the ...
