3-9. In Figure 3.9 we have shown a tank into which water enters at a volumetric rate and leaves at a rate that is given by 1 Q o Q oo 0.6 QA = g h Here o A is the area of the orifice in the bottom of the tank. If the tank is initially empty when Figure 3.9 . Tank filling process water begins to flow into the tank, we have an initial condition of the form I.C. 0, 0 ht = = In this problem you are asked to derive an equation that can be used to predict the height of the water at any time. For the special case given by 43 1 10 m / s Q = 2 o 0.5 cm A = 1.5 m D = = 2.78 m H you are asked to determine if the water will overflow the tank. 3-9. The control volume used to analyze this process is illustrated in Figure 3.9a where we have shown a moving control volume with “cuts” at the entrance and exit which are

Figure 3.9a . Tank filling and overflow process joined by a surface at which () vw n , is zero. When the water overflows, a second exit will be created; however, we are only concerned with the process that occurs prior to overflow.
