Question

3. 8-73 Water at 15°C is drained from a large reservoir using two horizontal plastic pipes connected in series. The first pipe is 13 m long and has a 10-cm diameter.while the second pipe is 35 m long and has a 5-cm diameter. The water level in the reservoir is 18 m above the centre line of the pipe. The pipe entrance is sharp-edged, and the contraction between the two pipes is sudden. Neglecting the effect of the kinetic energy correction factor, determine the discharge rate of water from the reservoir.
