#### Multipipe Systems: ConcepTest and Example Problem

##### Example Problem 1

An incompressible fluid with a density of 0.00209 slugs/ft^{3} flows from a tank at 0.5 psi through a 20 ft long pipe of 1 inch diameterĀ and then through a pipeĀ 0.5 in diameter also 20 feet long. If the friction factor for both pipes is 0.015, what is the flowrate? Assume the pipe exits into the atmosphere and neglect minor losses.
