Unformatted text preview: the depth H of the layer of liquid (Specific Weight = 50-lb/ft 3 ) that covers the water in the tank assuming an inviscid, incompressible flow. 6. If water flows from a garden hose nozzle with a velocity of 15-m/s, what is the maximum height that it can reach above the nozzle? 7. A circular stream of water from a faucet is observed to taper from a diameter of 20-mm to 10-mm in a distance of 50-cm. Determine the flow rate assuming steady, incompressible, frictionless flow. 8. In relation to the venturimeter discussed in class, draw the sketch and (a) Derive an expression for the volume low rate (Q) in terms of areas (A 1 and A 2 ), gravity g, and h . (b) Express Q in terms of diameters (d 1 and d 2 ) instead of areas (A 1 and A 2 ). 9. Explain ‘ Vena Contracta ’ in relation with an orifice flow using a sketch. 1/1...
