Water flows steadily from an open tank as shown in the figure.The elevation of point 1 is 10.0 meters, and the elevation of points 2 and 3 is 2.00 meters. The cross-sectional area at point 2 is 0.0480 square meters; at point 3, where the water is discharged, it is 0.0160 square meters. The cross-sectional area of the tank is very large compared with the cross-sectional area of the pipe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assuming that Bernoulli's equation applies, compute the discharge rate .

Express your answer in cubic meters per second.

I have no idea how to approach this...sorry...any help i can get would be amazing!
