Siphoning Out Gasoline from a Fuel Tank
During a trip to the beach ( P
= 1 atm = 101.3 kPa), a car runs out of j
gasoline, and it becomes necessary to siphon gas out of the car of a Good |
Samaritan (Fig. 5 - 4 0 ) . The siphon is a small-diam

Example:
For the pipe-flow-reducing section shown below, D = 8 cm,
D = 5 cm, and p = 1 atm. All fluids are at 20C. If V - 5 m/s
and the manometer reading is h = 58 cm, estimate the
