## Flow rate in a pump

two tanks were placed. tank one at a higher level and other(tank 2) at lower level. But in tank 2 a pump of flow rate Q ml/min is affixed.what is the flow rate in tank 2. Same as Q /min???

hi hamshie.k! welcome to pf!

??

what exactly is the whole question?
 tank 1 is placed above the level of tank 2. the water flows into tank 2 by the gravitational force from tank 1. But from thank 2 a pump is fixed to suck the water and again pump it into the tank 1. the question is whether the tank 2 will have the same flow rate of the pump, at the top surface of the tank??

## Flow rate in a pump

ahh!
ok, tell us what you think, and why, and then we'll comment!
 A pump is placed in the top level surface of the tank 2. at a suction end . delivered to tank 1

 same as the flow rate of the pump. i need that condition

 Quote by hamshie.k same as the flow rate of the pump.
correct

but why? (eg, is anything conserved, ie the same?)
 No external force applied
 Blog Entries: 27 Recognitions: Gold Member Homework Help Science Advisor forget the physics, just look at the material … the total amount of water is the same (W1 + W2 = constant), so W1' + W2' = 0
 Is it not possible that the pump in T2 can pump the water to T1 faster then T1 flows into T2?
