QUESITION A

Given;

Pipe diameter (d) = 100 mm

Reynolds’ Number = 500

Assume

Oil viscosity  = 0.08Ns/m2

Velocity um = 0.5m/s

Re =

p = 800kg/m3

 

QUESTION B

E = 25kJ + 7kJ/kg

E has the unit of kilojoules. The cause of this problem is error in dimension of this formula. ince do not have the same units, therefore, they can’t be added to obtain the total energy. To correct the answer we have to multiply the number 7 by mass of person. Then expression dimensionally homogenous.

Then expression is dimensionally homogenous, therefore they can be added to obtain the total energy.
