# Question In indoor plumbing, water must often be redirected and split when a pipe approaches a wall. Consider a situation like this in which the pipes are all horizontally oriented. Water is flowing at a velocity of 13 feet per second in a pipe of 9-in diameter at 28 psi before it is split in the tee pictured here into two pipes of 2-in diameter. Assume that the exiting flowrate in each of the branches of the tee are equal. What is the force in pounds of the water on the tee?Though the tee appears to be vertically oriented in the drawing so that you can see how the water is flowing, the tee is horizontally oriented.
