What is the pressure of a water tube with a narrow radius?

If water flows at 1.5 m/s with pressure 60000N/m^2, through a tube whose radius is .02 m, then what will be the pressure after the tube narrows to radius .01m?

Solution Preview

To solve this, first we can find the velocity fo the fluid in the narrow tube using the equation of continuity (where the fluid is assumed ...
