A flow loop is set up experimentally, as shown in the figure. Assume that the resistance of the nonbranching segments of tubing is negligible compared to that of segments A and B. The resistances are: RA = 1000 Pa-s/m3 and RB = 3000 Pa-s/m3.
a. Draw an analogous circuit diagram for this flow loop.
b. What is the flow rate through each segment?
c. What is the total pressure drop?
d. What is the pressure drop across each segment?
