50. 

A gas (density = 1.5 kg/m3 , viscosity = 2x 10-5 kg/m.s) flowing through a packed bed (particle size = 0.5 cm, porosity = 0.5) at a superficial velocity of 2 m/s causes a pressure drop of 8400 Pa/m. The pressure drop for another gas, with density of 1.5kg/m3and viscosity of 3 x 10-5kg/m.s flowing at 3 m/s will be

[A]. 8400 Pa/m
[B]. 12600 Pa/m
[C]. 18900 Pa/m
[D]. 16800 Pa/m
