Nitrogen gas enters a 0.230-m diameter pipe at 31.0°C, 3.00 atm, and 7.80 m/s. The pipe then rises 13.0 ft and then falls 79.0 ft. The nitrogen gas exits the pipe at 31.0°C and 1.10 atm. You ultimately would like to find ΔEk and ΔEp in the process. Assume N2 behaves ideally.
What is V1, the volumetric flow rate of nitrogen gas into the pipe section?
What is the mass flow rate into the pipe?
What is the average velocity of N2 leaving the pipe section?
What is the change in kinetic energy of the gas between the start and the end of the pipe section?
What is the change in potential energy of the gas between the start and the end of the pipe section?
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it discusses about calculation of volumetric flow rate of nitrogen gas in pipe section, mass of flow rate, average velocity of the gas leaving the pipe section.
