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
Thank you for this
