Consider steady flow of an incompressible fluid through two long and straight pipes of diameters $${d_1}$$ and $${d_2}$$ arranged in series. Both pipes are of equal length and the flow is turbulent in both pipes. The friction factor for turbulent flow though pipes is of the form, $$f = K{\left( {{\mathop{\rm Re}\nolimits} } \right)^{ - n}},$$ where $$K$$ and $$n$$ are known positive constants and $$Re$$ is the Reynolds number. Neglecting minor losses, the ratio of the frictional pressure drop in pipe $$1$$ to that in pipe $$2,$$ $$\left( {{{\Delta {P_1}} \over {\Delta {P_2}}}} \right),$$ is given by
A
$${\left( {{{{d_2}} \over {{d_1}}}} \right)^{\left( {5 - n} \right)}}$$
B
$${\left( {{{{d_2}} \over {{d_1}}}} \right)^5}$$
C
$${\left( {{{{d_2}} \over {{d_1}}}} \right)^{\left( {3 - n} \right)}}$$
D
$${\left( {{{{d_2}} \over {{d_1}}}} \right)^{\left( {5 + n} \right)}}$$
