    ---To find the dimensions of a DRAFT TUBE-------

    I hav a doubt regardin fluid mechanics....

    >>Say I have a draft tube which is like an inverted frustum of a cone.

    >>I pass a fluid of volume "V" ,and this fluid helps in balancin a ball of mass "m" at the outlet of the tube .

    >>The pressure actin on the ball is naturally the atmospheric pressure and also the volume of flow of fluid is the same in inlet and outlet.

    NOW I WANT TO FIND THE DIMENSIONS(the base radius,top surface radius,the height)

    Can someone plz help to find the dimensions of the tube?

    Thanks and Regards,
