(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Water is flowing from a container through a 50mm diameter hole at 36 liters a minute. Calculate the flow rate in L/s and the flow velocity through the hole.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

flow rate all i did was 36L/60s to get 0.6 L/s

flow velocity is where i am stuck.

Is it flow rate / Pi x r^2

So 0.6 / 0.00196 = 305.6 ms-1

missed a few classes due to illness typical most my assignment that is due was covered in them days i miss. Any help would be great.

Thanks
