Assuming reservoir level stays constant, and friction losses are negligible compared to gravitational effects, which overflow config achieves a higher volumetric flow rate?

---------------------

Now, I'm arguing with a friend about this. He's saying the long pipe will have the greater flow, using the steady state energy equation. I don't think that analysis will be valid here though...any ideas?

Thanks.
