🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Zochowski's class at UMICH.

The horizontal pipe, shown in the figure, has a cross-sectional area of 40.0 cm^{2} at the wider portions and 10.0 cm^{2} at the constriction. Water is flowing in the pipe, and the discharge from the pipe is 6.00 10^{ - 3} m^{3}/s (6.00 L/s). The density of mercury is ρ_{Hg} = 13.6 10^{3} kg/m^{3} and the density of water is ρ_{w} = 1.00 10^{3} kg/m^{3}.

a) Find the flow speed at the wide portion.

b) Find the flow speed at the narrow portion.

c) What is the pressure difference between these portions?

d) What is the difference in height between the mercury columns in the U-shaped tube?
