can someone please show me some light? thanks in advance. the flow rate is definitely going to be the same, but wat abt the pressure? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v494/tauhutauhu/flow.jpg

Smells like homework.

And the answer depends on issues not present in your drawing. What is moving through the pipes? What amount of pressure is the material under? How fast is it moving already?

And no, the flow rate is not necessarily going to be the same. For example, there might be issues due to cavitation (turbulance and the posibility of internal recirculation).

oooops....i feel terribly sorry for not reading the FAQ earlier on.
juz read it after i saw the moderator's post.
this is not a homework, it's abt my car exhaust system modification. it has nothing to do with game developtment...

i was thinkin abt connecting the silencers in parallel instead of in series. so tought abt asking abt it here whether it's going to cause higher pressure and reduce the engine's performance.

really feel sorry for what i've done.

moderator pls close this thread. thx and sorry again.

To be fair, I think there's been a misunderstanding. On the main forum page the description of this forum says something to the effect of "For discussion of math and physics, primarily as related to game programming". See, primarily, not exclusively. But then the forum FAQ says "To discuss solutions and algorithms for math and physics AS RELATED TO game development". I think this should be fixed to avoid confusion like this in the future.
