A pump pumps fluid into a pipe at a rate of flow of 60.0 cubic centimeters per second. If the cross-sectional area of the pipe at a point is 1.2 cm2, what is the average speed of the fluid at this point My solution is pretty simple; since the water (60cm^3/2) has to flow cross section (1.2cm^2) I divide (60cm^3/s) by (1.2cm^2) to calculate the velocity at which the water flows through the tube. Therefore (60cm^3)/(1.2cm^2)=50cm/s * I know this is simple but I'd like to double check. Thanks

    It looks fine to me the units when cancelling them out makes sense so I think it is valid

    Yeah thanks it's supposed to accord with continuity equation.

    I was a little confounded but your insight makes it go away;)

    Well the big thing is that if the units don't cancel out properly then it doesn't make sense so since the units make sense with what you are finding then I would only assume that what you did would be valid

    True... units are good indicators of veracity
