1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A pump at ground level creates a gauge pressure of 102 kPa in the water line supplying an apartment building. The water leaves the tank into a pipe at a negligible speed. It travels up 10 m through the building and exits through a faucet. The cross-sectional area of the faucet is 2.0 cm^2. What is the Volume Flow Rate of the water leaving the faucet in cm^3/s?
2. Relevant equations
Volume Flow Rate: Q=Av
Bernoulli equation simplified: v = square root of: (Gauge Pressure - density of water*g*height)/(1/2 density)
So put V into Q=Av and solve!?
3. The attempt at a solution
I found it to be: 8 cm^3/m
Where am I going wrong?
