Problem 15.2: Density of liquid flowing through pipes

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Assume an ideal fluid (position is given in meters and pressure is given in pascals). The dark brown in the animation represents a section of liquid as it flows into a region marked by the horizontal line and the corresponding water that must move out of the region in the top right. What is the density of the liquid? Restart.

Note: The format of the pressure is written in shorthand. For example, atmospheric pressure, 1.01 x 105 Pa, is written as 1.01e+005.
