Problem 103P

A 3-m-high large tank is initially filled with water. The tank water surface is open to the atmosphere, and a sharp-edged 10-cm-diameter orifice at the bottom drains to the atmosphere through a horizontal 80-m-long pipe. If the total irreversible head loss of the system is determined to be 1.5 m, determine the initial velocity of the water from the tank. Disregard the effect of the kinetic energy correction factors.

## Step 1 of 1

The height of the water in the tank and head loss is given. We have to calculate the initial velocity of the water from the tank.

We will use the Bernoulli's equation in terms of conservation of head to solve the problem.
