Unformatted text preview: level in the tank. Derive an equation that gives the inlet flow rate (in [kg/s]) required to maintain the water height (h) at a given level, where h [m] is measured from the bottom of the tank upwards. (e) Determine the inlet flow rate needed to keep the water level at 50% full. (f) Assume that the tank is initially empty. At time t=0, the inlet is turned on at the flow rate you found in part (e). How long does it take the tank to reach 30% full? Think carefully…is the flowrate going out constant? (g) How long does it take for the initially empty tank from part (f) to reach 50% full?
