Homework Help: Flow in network of pipes

  1. May 23, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    from the diagram , we know that the junction is lower than the pipe at B . why the author wanna make an assumption that the junction is located at 20m from the datum ? is it correct to do so ?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    eventually , i found the ans is 25.2m , the delta Q is close to 0 ,
    but , i also tried with 18m , then slowly change to 16m and 14m , by using Q1+Q2 - Q3 , i found the ans is getting bigger , does it mean the junction has to be higher?

    P/s : to admin , hopefully , i moved to an appropriate place to get better response
