A container of water has a cross-sectional area of 0.100 m2. A piston sits on top of the water, as shown. There is a spout located 0.150 m from the bottom of the tank, open to the atmosphere, and a stream of water exits the spout. The cross sectional area of the spout is m2.
What is the speed of the water as it leaves the spout?
How far from the spout does the water hit the floor? Ignore all friction and dissipative forces.
Consider a swimming pool that can hold L of water.
Find the time required to fill the pool using a garden hose delivering water at a rate of 75.00 L/min.
Find the time required to fill the pool by diverting into it a moderate-sized river that flows at a rate of m3/s.
Water emerges vertically downward from a faucet that has a 1.600 cm diameter, moving at a speed of 0.400 m/s. Because of the construction of the faucet, there is no variation in speed across the stream.
What is the flow rate of water from the faucet?
What is the diameter of the water stream at a point 0.200 m vertically below the faucet? Neglect any effects due to surface tension.
