Problem 55P
Problem 55PWater is flowing through a 15-cm-diameter pipe that consists of a 3-m-long vertical and 2-m-long horizontal section with a 90° elbow at the exit to force the water to be discharged downward, as shown in Fig. P6-58, in the vertical direction. Water discharges to atmospheric air at a velocity of 7 m/s. and the mass of the pipe section when filled with water is 15 kg per meter length. Determine the moment acting at the intersection of the vertical and horizontal sections of the pipe (point A). What would your answer be if the flow were discharged upward instead of downward?
