Goodday . i wonder if anyone can help with this .
I looking for the formula to the below problem inorder to use same to transpose in case i shoild need the pipe size in another case


Two tanks , tank A and tank B.
How much time in hours to fill tank B. Where Tank A is a full water tank( always being filled up from the top)of 100m^3 with a pipe on the bottom filling into tank B , an empty water tank of 50m^3 . The pipe is 100mm in diametre.
Both tanks are 10 m high
And where 1m^3 of water = 1 ton

The problem I.m having is that the flow rate slows down as the tank fills'

Have you tried the Bernoulli equation?
 

1. What is decanting one tank into another?

Decanting one tank into another is the process of transferring liquid or gas from one container or tank into another. This can be done for various reasons, such as separating different substances, mixing liquids, or simply transferring a substance into a new container for storage or transportation.

2. How is decanting one tank into another performed?

The specific method of decanting one tank into another can vary depending on the type of substance and containers involved. Generally, it involves carefully pouring the liquid or gas from one container into another, while ensuring that any impurities or sediment are left behind in the original container.

3. What precautions should be taken when decanting one tank into another?

Some precautions to consider when decanting one tank into another include wearing protective gear, such as gloves and safety glasses, to avoid any potential spills or splashes. It is also important to use appropriate equipment, such as funnels or pumps, to ensure a smooth and safe transfer of the substance.

4. Are there any risks associated with decanting one tank into another?

Decanting one tank into another may carry some risks, depending on the type of substance being transferred. For example, flammable or toxic substances should be handled with caution and appropriate safety measures should be taken. It is important to carefully read and follow any safety instructions or regulations when performing decanting.

5. Can any substance be decanted from one tank into another?

Not all substances can be decanted from one tank into another. Some substances may react with the container material or with other substances, causing potential hazards. It is important to research and understand the properties of the substance being decanted and ensure that it is safe to transfer into the new container.
