### Pipes in Parallel

How do Pipes in Parallel work from fluid mechanics' point of view? What is rate of discharge in main pipe and loss of head in each pipe?

Figure below shows a system of pipes in parallel. In such a case

(a) The rate of discharge in the main pipe is equal to the sum of discharges in each of the parallel pipes, i.e.

Q =Q1 + Q2,

(b) The loss of head in each pipe is same, i.e.

### Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more
