For a fully developed laminar flow of water (dynamic viscosity $0.001$ $P_{a-s}$) through a pipe of radius $5$ $cm$, the axial pressure gradient is −$10$ $Pa/m$. The magnitude of axial velocity (in $m/s$) at a radial location of $0.2$ $cm$ is _______
The head loss for a laminar incompressible flow through a horizontal circular pipe is $h_1$. Pipe length and fluid remaining the same, if the average flow velocity doubles and the pipe diameter reduces to half its previous value, the head loss is $h_2$. The ratio $h_2$/$h_1$ is $1$ $4$ $8$ $16$
