Homework Help: How to find the volumetric flow rate?

  1. Sep 22, 2014 #1
    With a given 2kW pump
    That pumps a liquid with a density of 820kg/m³ from one tank to another thats 30m higher.
    With a calculated change in pressure to be 241.3kpa.
    Find the volumetric flow rate.

    I feel like there are not enough given variables for this problem. What do you think?

    What additional information do you think you need? What formula would try to use?

    Just thinking about the height for now...
    How much work to lift a mass m of water up a height h?
