## Fluid Velocity

Consider a pipe with a 5 m^2 cross sectional area. If a fluid is traveling through the pipe at 100 cubic meters a second, what is the velocity of the fluid flow?

Hint
$$Q=v\times A$$$where $$Q$$ is the volumetric flow rate of a fluid through the pipe, $$v$$ is the average fluid flow velocity, and $$A$$ is the pipe's cross sectional area. Hint 2 Since Q and A are given in the problem statement, we can simply solve for v: $$v=\frac{Q}{A}$$$
For a fluid one dimensional flow:
$$Q=v\times A$$$where $$Q$$ is the volumetric flow rate of a fluid through the pipe, $$v$$ is the average fluid flow velocity, and $$A$$ is the pipe's cross sectional area. Since Q and A are given in the problem statement, we can simply solve for v: $$v=\frac{Q}{A}=\frac{100m^{3}}{5m^2\cdot sec}=20\:m/s$$$
20 m/s
