comment Confused about unit of kilowatt hours
I guess i understand what you're saying, I am just having a hard time trying to apply it to the design of a fuel cell. I am trying to size a fuel cell so that it can run consistently for a day, essentially proving 24 kW-hr so I thought i could just design a 1 kW fuel cell and provide it with enough fuel and air so that it could run for 24 hours

comment Confused about unit of kilowatt hours
So is my above solution correct? If the average consumtion of a house per day is 24 kW-hr then should my fuel cell be designed as a 1 kW fuel cell or a 24 kW fuel cell?

My question was not aiming towards information about a generator. It was more towards a better understanding of a kilowatt hour.

comment How would I work this continuity problem?
Thanks. It's a cool project, if I did save it for the last two weeks. I still have to design the vapor compression refrigeration cyce. It's for my Energy Systems design course. Yes the pipes will be pretty long but they will be winding under the ice rink. Maybe not 1" but between 1" and 2". Do you think I should keep the fluid velocities in the larger pipe and the smaller pipes the same?

comment How would I work this continuity problem?
I am designing a piping network that goes under an ice rink for a project. So I am not really sure if the fluid velocities should be the same. But I know that the flow rate of each smaller pipe is $\frac{1}{10}$ of the flow rate in the big feed pipe

comment How would I work this continuity problem?
A pump will be controlling the fluid flow so there will be a constant flow rate. I am essentially designing an ice rink cooling system and I am trying to design the piping network that will be under the rink. Will the fluid velocities be the same between the smaller pipe and the bigger feed pipe or would that be a design choice?

I assumed that the pressure of the atmosphere where it exits is 0 gauge pressure. I am not using absolute pressure. And yes I do need the pressure at the beginning of the exhaust system.... that't what I am solving for

Thank you anyway. I'll try to figure it out myself

I never thought of it that way. Thanks for helping me understand that
