submerged 1n water The operating water temperature is 15‘J C. The suction cup is
located 1 m below the water surface, and the venture throat is located 1 m above the
water. The atmosphere pressure is 100 kPa. The ratio of the throat area to the exit area is
1A, and the exit area is 0.001 n12. The area of the suction cup is 0.1 1112. a. Find the velocity of the water at the exit for the maximum lift condition. 1).
