## Homework Statement

Water is falling gently into a large tank at 0.2m^3s^-1 and leaves through a small hole in the bottom of the tank of area 0.05m^2. What is the water velocity as it leaves? How full is the tank in the steady state?

## Homework Equations

Well if the rate of water entering is 0.2m^3s^-1 by dimensional analysis rate=velocity*area

So the rate of water leaving the tank will be v*Area = v*0.05

I'm not sure how to find the velocity of the water as it leaves the tank because surely these two rates will not be the same (except in the steady state??)
