I'm looking some something like a dummies book or even less that deals
with some of the simpler (maybe) concepts of hydraulics. Maybe something
like hydraulics for plumbers or gardeners. Maybe something that answers
questions like if water is pumped out of a 2" pipe, which then splits
into two pipes, one is 1" and the other 1/2" in diameter, how much of
the water flows into each, or what, if any, pressure exists at the end
of each of the two pipes? If a 1" pipe is restricted to go into a 1/2"
pipe, how is the flow rate determined? Possibly there's 20 page or
whatever primer on the web of this sort?
No idea about the web but might look to see if can find the Crane "Flow
of Fluids Through Valves, Fittings and Pipe" handbook or publication
online. If memory doesn't fail it's Crane Publication 410.
Have you ever had sex? If you have, you've experienced hydraulics.
In fact if you keep pumping a woman without pulling out, she'll
suddenly go flying off the end of your dick like a rocket. This is
why men generally lay on top of their women to hold them down. But
build up enough pressure and she'll blast right out from under you.
Try this and you'll be an expert on hydraulics.
