Flowmetry Analysis (relating height to flow rate)

  1. Nov 11, 2016 #1

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to find the instantaneous height of a liquid during the simultaneous filling and emptying (through a hole) of a cylinder. I have varying Qin at incremental time of 1 sec. with cylinder area=5 cm and orifice area=0.5 cm.

    2. Relevant equations
    Torricelli's theorem
    Continuity equation

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1) Used V=Qt to find volume for each flow rate.
    2) Calculated H=V/A.
    3) Used torricelli's theorem to calculate Qout.

    But this doesn't seem to me like the correct modeling of the problem and am stuck on how to go about it.
