Common units of fluid rate
How does the diameter of a pipe affect the volume flow rate?
Volume flow rate (describe and give formula)
Mass flow rate (describe and give formula)
Flow rate in an open channel (describe and give formula) (see page 50-51 for discussion)
Rearrange all 3 equations and solve for all variables
Volume Flow Rate
Mass Flow Rate
Open Channel Flow Rate
Re-work example 3-F (page 39) using the following values: 15,000 gallons of water in 210 minutes. Show all formulas and work for every step.
Poor Mike he has a very bad cold. How long will it take him to move 250 in^3 of nasal excretions if the snot is travelling at a rate of 72.3 in^3/sec. (and how many boxes of Kleenex will he need so he doesn't make too big of a mess)? Show all formulas and work for every step.
