# Problem 5: A pressurized tank of water has a 10-cm-diameter nozzle at the bottom, where theliquid discharges to the atmosphere. The liquid level is 2.5 m above the outlet and the tankdiameter can be assumed to be much larger than the diameter of the discharge nozzle. The airpressure in the space above the liquid is 250 kPa (absolute) while the atmospheric pressure is100 kPa. Neglecting frictional effects, determine the rate of discharge (kg/sec) of liquid from thetank when the liquid level is 2.5m.Air250 kPa25 m10 cm

Step 1

Let above the liquid surface as point 1 and point 2 as just after the nozzle.

Step 2

Bernoulli’s equation is considered as the principle of conservation of energy in fluid flow.
