Problem 56P Problem 56PThe water level in a tank is 15 m above the ground. A hose is connected to the bottom of the tank, and the nozzle at the end of the hose is pointed straight up. The tank cover is airtight, and the air pressure above the water surface is 3 atm, gage. The system is at sea level. Determine the maximum height to which the waterstream could rise. Step-by-Step Solution:
Solution to 56PStep 1<p>We need to find the maximum height to which the stream of water will rise if the air pressure above  the water is 3atm.

To compute this, we need to use Bernoulli’s theorem.

Step 2</p> Here we will take two points in the system i.e point 1 inside the tank and point 2 outside tank.

Bernoulli’s theorem is given by, Where =PRESSURE, =VELOCITY, =Height, =density, =acceleration due to gravity.

Given data,

V2=V1=0m/s

Z1=20m

Z2=h

P2=Patm  Step 3 of 3
