1 a jet of water strikes a splitter and splits into two stream of equa

Question

1. A jet of water strikes a splitter and splits into two stream of equal velocity but unequal thickness. All jets have a width w (into the paper). Friction forces of the water stream on the splitter are negligible. Ignore the weight of the splitter. a) Use the integral mass conservation equation to find an equation for the thickness t of angled exit stream, t =f (h, a) b) Apply the momentum equation in the vertical direction to find an equation 0 = f(a).Hint: the net vertical force on the splitter is zero. c) Find an equation Fx = f(p,V,w,h,a,0) for the horizontal force on the splitter
