determine how the drag force F

Example 6.1 Hot and cold air are mixed within a mixing box, and air at
an intermediate temperature is emitted from the outlet, as shown. Find the
outlet velocity for the conditions indicated.
Example 6.2 Problem 6.42 (Fox, McDonald & Pritchard 6th Ed)
Water ows steadily up a vertical pipe, of diameter d
p
= 100mm, and out
of a horizontal nozzle, which is of diameter d
J
= 50mm, discharging to at
mospheric conditions. The stream velocity at the exit nozzle must be 20m/s.
Find the minimum gauge pressure at the section A, a vertical distance h = 4m
below the nozzle. If the device were inverted what would the required mini
mum pressure at section A to maintain the nozzle exit velocity at 20m/s.
Example 6.3 Problem 6.46 (Fox, McDonald & Pritchard 6th Ed)
A stream of liquid moving at low speed leaves a nozzle pointed directly down
ward. The velocity may be considered uniform across the the nozzle exit
and the eects of viscosity ignored. At the nozzle exit, located at an eleva
tion z
0
, the jet velocity and crosssectional area are V
0
and A
0
, respectively.
Determine the variation of the jet area with elevation.
Example 6.4 Air ows steadily at low speed through a horizontal contract
ing pipe, usually known as nozzle (since by denition it is a device for ac
celerating ow), discharging to atmosphere. The area of the nozzle inlet is
0.1m
2
. At the nozzle exit, the area is 0.02 m
2
. Determine the gauge pressure
required at the nozzle inlet to produce an outlet speed of 50m/s.

that must be provided by the surrounding pipes to support the reducer. The
uid is gasoline with specic gravity SG = 0.72.
Example 7.2 Water ows steadily through a 90
