Problem with Mass source, Momentum source theory

Intending to model an inlet (nozzle) that is smaller than a cell in a domain, i decided to define a mass source in the cell where my inlet is supposed to be, and to add to that mass source a momentum source.
Hence I expect to rebuild the given nozzle mass flow (m_dot).
Mass source UDF: m_dot/Volume _Cell
Momentum source UDF: m_dot*Exit_Velocity/Volume_Cell
m_dot: known from the details of the nozzle
Exit_Velocity: calculated by dividing m_dot with Air_density*Exit_Area_Nozzle
on a velocity Plot of a surface crossing the chosen Cell i see a velocity distribution, where the maximum velocity is though a the chosen cell, but the amount is not near that what i had implemented (implemented Velocity was "Exit_Velocity").
THE HINK in the logic:
according to the Fluent-user-guide (page 7-225) it is possible to create a mass source term (m_dot) without giving it any impuls, then create an impuls(Momentum) source term that orientates the mass.
But i u look carefully at the formula of the mass source, there is already a velocity in there (logically). Then i give in Momentum source a second velocity... from there on , I'm lost.
To make things easy, i chose a cell with Faces, that all have an area of 1m².
Can someone please give me a clue how to manage to have a plotted maximal velocity that corresponds to implemented one....
