Unformatted text preview: q = G ( T o-T i ). This ﬂow rate q requires its reference direction. Should the arrow for the ﬂow rate q be from the inside to the outside or from the outside to the inside? e. Consider a tank with constant cross sectional area A . See Figure 1. Suppose that the tank q i A q o h Figure 1: Tank. loses its water at the rate of q o ( t ) through its outﬂow pipe and that it receives water at the rate of q i ( t ) from the inﬂow pipe. We assume that the rates q o ( t ) and q i ( t ) are both volumetric ﬂow rates. Let h ( t ) denote the head (i.e., the water level) of the tank. What equation should these four quantities satisfy?...
