Unformatted text preview: Example 101 Water flows under a sluice gate, as shown. The downstream velocity is assumed to be uniform across the crosssection and the upstream velocity is assumed to be negligibly small. Find the velocity V 2 by using the top streamline from 1 to 2. Show that this is equal to velocity V 4 by using the bottom streamline from 3 to 4. Calculate the value of V 2 in ft/s and the volumetric flow rate per foot of sluice gate width in ft3/s. Solution: The Bernoulli equation along the top streamline gives
P 1 P2 V 22 V 12 + + gz1 = + + gz2 ρ 2 ρ 2 Patm V 22 V 12 + + gH1 = + + gH 2 ρ 2 ρ 2 Patm Since V 1 ≈ 0
V 22 gH1 = + gH 2 2 V 2 = 2 g ( H1 − H 2 )
The Bernoulli equation along the bottom streamline gives

V 42 gH1 = + gH 2 2 V 4 = 2 g ( H1 − H 2 ) = V
