Analysis of tank with inflow and outlflow Consider a control volume enclosing the interior of the tank: CV m in m out M CV m in = ρ Q in = mass flow rate into the CV (Q = volume flow rate) m out = ρ Q out = mass flow rate out of the CV M CV = mass currently in the CV From conservation of mass ("continuity") then m in m out dM CV dt = (1) For the present case D tank 10 := ft D pipe 2.5 12 := D pipe 0.208 = ft Inlet volume flow rate Q in 500 := USgal/min (conversion: 1 USgal = 0.1337 ft 3 ) Q in Q in 0.1337 60 := Q in 1.114 = MAAE2300/3.2
