Fluid discharge from pipe to atmosphere

  1. May 22, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I know that when the fluid flow from pipe to reservoir, the coefficient of discahrge is 1, where head loss =k(v^2)/2g..... How about the fluid is discharged from pipe to atmosphere??
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    IMO , it is still 1 for the coefficient of loss from the pipe to atmosphere , is it true , can someone clarify??

    i think there is no need to include the loss due to the fluid friction loss from pipe to atmosphere.... i am not really sure thoigh
