Answer to Question #225840 in Chemical Engineering for Braim016

Question #225840

Water is used to simulate the flow characteristics of oil in an industrial pipeline. The diameter of the test pipeline is 1/10th of that of the industrial pipeline. The viscosities of water and oil are 3.0 x10-4 and 2.9 x 10-2 N.s/m2 while their densities are 1000 and 1720 kg/m3 respectively. If the water velocity in the test pipeline is 10m/s, what is the corresponding oil velocity in the industrial pipeline?

Since viscosity is directly proportional to elocity,


velocity is inversely proportional to area, since the flow rate is constant
