Consider steady, incompressible and irrotational flow through a reducer in a horizontal pipe where the diameter is reduced from $$20cm$$ to $$10cm.$$ The pressure in the $$20cm$$ pipe just upstream of the reducer is $$150kPa.$$ The fluid has a vapour pressure of $$50kPa$$ and a specific weight of $$5\,\,kN/{m^3}.$$ Neglecting frictional effects, the maximum discharge (in $${m^3}/s$$) that can pass through the reducer without causing cavitation is
A
$$0.05$$
B
$$0.16$$
C
$$0.27$$
D
$$0.38$$

A
$$0.2$$ $$m/s$$
B
$$1$$ $$m/s$$
C
$$1.4$$ $$m/s$$

A $$U$$-tube manometer with a small quantity of mercury is used to measure the static pressure difference between two locations $$A$$ and $$B$$ in a conical section through which an incompressible fluid flows. At a particular flow rate, the mercury column appears as shown in the figure. The density of mercury is $$13600$$ $$kg/{m^3}$$ and $$g = 9.81$$ $$m/{s^2}.$$ Which of the following is correct? A
Flow direction is $$A$$ to $$B$$ & $${P_A} - {P_B} = 20\,kPa$$
B
Flow direction is $$B$$ to $$A$$ & $${P_A} - {P_B} = 1.4\,kPa$$
C
Flow direction is $$A$$ to $$B$$ & $${P_B} - {P_A} = 20\,kPa$$
D
Flow direction is $$B$$ to $$A$$ & $${P_B} - {P_A} = 1.4\,kPa$$

Air flows through a venture and into atmosphere. Air density is $$\rho$$; atmospheric pressure is $$'\,{P_a}';$$ throat diameter is exit diameter is $$'{D_t}';$$ and exit velocity is $$U.$$ the throat is connected to a cylinder containing a frictionless piston attached to a spring. The spring constant is $$'k'.$$ the bottom surface of the piston is exposed to atmosphere. Due to the flow, the piston moves by distance $$x.$$ assuming incompressible frictionless flow, $$x$$ is A
$$\left( {\rho {U^2}/2k} \right)\pi {D_s}^2$$
B
$$\left( {\rho {U^2}/8k} \right)\left( {{{{D^2}} \over {{D_t}^2}} - 1} \right)\pi {D_s}^2$$
