Figure 4 "Y" Configuration for Example Problem
Continuity Equation - Multiple Outlets
A piping system has a "Y" configuration for separating the flow as shown in Figure 4.
The diameter of the inlet leg is 12 in., and the diameters of the outlet legs are 8 and 10
in. The velocity in the 10 in. leg is 10 ft/sec. The flow through the main portion is 500
lbm/sec. The density of water is 62.4 lbm/ft3. What is the velocity out of the 8 in. pipe
