What are the flow rates coming out of this Tee?

EastmanEastman Member Posts: 726
If flow z = 6gpm, what does x and y equal?

flow x = ?

flow y = ?

The 3/4 inch side loops are equal in every way. (length, elbows, etc...)

Yes, the question is as simple as it seems.

    flow rate

    since both loops [x,y] are equal, then the flow must be the same in each.

    due to the incompressibility of water, then the flow will be 3gallons in each.--nbc

    That should be good.

    Yes, 3!

    Don't get flow rate confused with velocity.
