A metal pipe and L = 10 m) situated in an engine room is used for transporting hot saturated water vapor at a flow rate of 0.03 kg/s. The water vapor enters and exits the pipe at and respectively. Oil leakage can occur in the engine room, and when leaked oil comes in contact with hot spots above the oil’s autoignition temperature, it can ignite spontaneously. To prevent any fire hazard caused by oil leakage on the hot surface of the pipe, determine the needed insulation layer thickness over the pipe for keeping the outer surface temperature below

Consider a heavy car submerged in water in a lake with a flat bottom. The driver’s side door of the car is 1.1 m high and 0.9 m wide, and the top edge of the door is 10 m below the water surface. Determine the net force acting on the door (normal to its surface) and the location of the pressure center if (a) the car is well–sealed and it contains air at atmospheric pressure and (b) the car is filled with water.
The water level in a tank is 20 m above the ground. A hose is connected to the bottom of the tank, and the nozzle at the end of the hose is pointed straight up. The tank is at sea level, and the water surface is open to the atmosphere. In the line leading from the tank to the nozzle is a pump, which increases the pressure of water. If the water jet rises to a height of 27 m from the ground, determine the minimum pressure rise supplied by the pump to the water line.
