River Dam generates electricity with water taken from a depth of 135 m and with an average Fow rate of 570 m 3 /s. a) Calculate the power in this Fow. Note that the velocity and height of the water are not changed appreciably by the generators, and the pressure at the exit point is at atmospheric level. Take the density of water to be 1000 kg/m 3 . 754.1 MW Help Reset Enter * 754.1 OK b) What is the speed of the water at the exit point? 51.43 m/s Help Reset Enter * 51.43 OK c) What is the radius of the exit hole in the dam? 1.878 m Help Reset Enter * 1.878 OK All Help Reset All Tycho Instructions Physical Constants (pi, g, k, c, G, etc.) Astronomical Constants (mass, radius of the earth, sun, etc.) Gradebook Assignment Menu List of Assignments Course Homepage Log In Log Out River Dam https://tycho-s.physics.wisc.edu/cgi/courses/shell/phys103/spring09/t. .. 1 of 1
