This assignment should require around
9

hours of work by an average student.

Place
completed assignment in the box

marked AMME2200
on level 3
(
outside
Room 339) in the
Mechanical Engineering building
.

Assignment Problems:

1
. The velocity distribution in a 1.0 cm diameter pipe is given by
u(r)=
16(1

-

r
2
/r

)

m/s, where
r
o

is

the

pipe radius. Calculate the shear stress at the centerline, at r=0.25 cm and at the wall if water at 20
o
C is

flowing. (
Ans. 0, 3.2 Pa, 6.4 Pa
)

2
. A 2 mm
diameter bubble is formed by a

stream of 10
o
C water. Determine the gauge pressure in the

bubble.
Surfa
ce tension data: see text, P 448.
(Ans.

299 Pa)

3
. A 2 m wide, 3 m high vertical rectangular gate has its top edge 2 m belo
w the water level. It is hinged

along its lower edge. What
horizontal
force, acting on the top edge, is needed to hold the gate shut? ( Ans.

88.3 kN)

4
.
A turbine which is 87% efficient accepts 2 m
3
/s of water from a 50 cm diameter
pipe. The pressure drop

is 600 kPa

and the exit velocity is small. Determine the turbine output. (Ans. 1.135 MW)

5
.
The exit area of

the nozzle in a fireman’s hose is so small that the velocity in the hose is negligible.

What is the maximum exit velocity and the maximum height the water c
an reach if the pressure in the hose

is 700 kPa? (Ans. 37.4 m
/
s, 71.4 m)

6
. A pitot
-
static

tube is used to measure the velocity of an aircraft flying at 1000 m

(see Table A24).

Calculate the velocity for a pressure reading of 2 kPa.
. (Ans. 59.9 m/s)

7
.

A 75% efficient pump delivers 0.1 m3 of water from a reservoir to a device at an ele
vation of 50 m

above the reservoir. The pressure at the 8
-
cm diameter entrance to the device is 180 kPa.
The piping loss

coefficient is 5.6. Determine the pump input power

needed. (Ans. 264 kW)

8
. Water flows at the rate of 600 l/min in a 4 cm diameter horizontal pipe
with a pressure of 690 kPa. If

the pressure after an enlargement to 6 cm diameter is measured to be 700 kPa,

the

enlargement.

(Ans. 1.57 m)
