SYSC 3600 – Assignment 1 1/. A keg of beer bought for an important student party has a small hole in its bottom, and the beer is slowly dripping out. A quick analysis by the very best brains in the class suggests that the flow rate (in m 3 /s) is given by kp , where p is the pressure (in Pa above atmospheric pressure) at the bottom of the keg and k is 1x10 -10 m 3 /Pa-s. The keg is cylindrical with a diameter of 0.7m and has a small hole it its top through which air can enter. Assume that the density of beer is 1000 kg/m 3 . 0.7m small hole Derive a defining equation for the system. Use the volume of beer in the keg as the variable quantity. Is the system analogous to any of the systems in the notes? If so, relate your equation to the general form. Assuming that the leak is discovered at 9am on a Monday and that there are 350l of beer in the keg at the time, how much beer will be left by 7pm Friday (party time)? 2/. Derive a defining equation for the system shown below.
