A cylindrical tank of height 0.4 m is open at the top and has a diameter 0.16 m.Water is filled in it upto a height of 0.16 m .Calculate the time taken to empty the tank through a hole of radius 5x10^-3m in its bottom?

    First, use Torricelli's law to determine speed of water in the hole and rate of flow. \(v=\sqrt{2gh}\)

    Try again. radius is 0.08m and height is 0.16m

    now escape velocity is \(v=\sqrt{2gh}\)

    and discharge is v multiplied by area of hole.

    so how do we bring in volume?

  23. Vincent-Lyon.Fr

    time taken is: volume / discharge you should find 22.9s

    initial escape velocity is v=root(2g hmax) discharge is v multiplied by area of hole. time taken is: volume / discharge you should find 22.9s This is the time it would take to empty the tank if initial discharge was constant. Real duration, when h varies, is twice that time.
