## Homework Statement

A tank contains oil with a specific gravity of 0.80, which is discharged through a 30mm diameter pipe at 12m/s. Calculate the discharge in L/s and Kg/s.

## Homework Equations

specific gravity=density of oil/density of water

mass flow rate=volume flow rate*density

volume flow rate=velocity*area

## The Attempt at a Solution

Density=(0.8*1000)=800 kg/m^3

Area=pi(0.015)^2=7.068583471*10^-4

Q=12*7.068583471*10^-4=8.482300165*10^-3

m=8.482300165*10^-3*800=6.785840132 kg/s

Shouldn't L/s be the same since 1L=1Kg?
