A pipe bend tapers from a diameter of
d

of 500 mm at inlet (see Fig. 5.7) to a diameter of
d

of 250 mm at the outlet and turns the flow through an angle
θ
of 45

. Measurements of pressure
at inlet and outlet show that the pressure
p

and the pressure
p

Water discharges from a reservoir A (Fig. 14.2) through a 100 m
m
pipe 15 m long which rises
to its highest point at B,
1.5m above
the free surface of the reservoir,
and discharge

length of pipe
