Question #266948

Oil flows from a tank through a 50 mm diameter pipe. If the average velocity is 1.3 m/s, determine how long it will take for 2500 kg of oil to flow out. Take S.G (oil) = 0.78

Expert's answer

given:

dia = 50mm

velocity = 1.3m/s

load = 2500kg

S.G = 780kg/m^{3}

Volume of soil = load/S.G

= 2500/780

= 3.2 m^{3}

Discharge = A x velocity

= /4(0.05)^{2} x 1.3

= 2.55 x 10^{-3}m^{3}/s

Time required = 3.2/2.55 x 10^{-3}

^{ } = 21 min
