Calculate the fluid velocity in ft/sec to 2 decimal places. The formula for the velocity is given by:

velocity =Flow rate / Pipe Area

The flow rate = 29 gpm

and the Pipe Area is calculated from its diameter of 4 inches,

231 cubic inches = 1 gallon,

12 inches = 1 ft, and

60 sec = 1 minute

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

velocity =Flow rate / Pipe Area

            = 29 gpm / π *( diameter / 2)^2

            = 111.65 cubic inches per second /  π * 4 inches square

            = 8. 88482  inches per second

            = 106.61789 ft per second

           = 106.62 ft per second



answer is

106.62   ft/sec

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.....thank you

iam sorry...i made a mistake in that answer


velocity =Flow rate / Pipe Area

  = 29 gpm / π *( diameter / 2)^2

  = 111.65 cubic inches per second /  π * 4 inches square

  = 8. 88482  inches per second

  = 0.740402 ft per second                     (12 inches = 1 ft)

  = 0.74  ft per second


answer is

0.74     ft/sec
