Question: a large open reservoir contains several thousand gallons of water...

Question details

A large open reservoir contains several thousand gallons of water at 20 deg C. For a certain industrial purpose, water empties from the bottom of the reservoir, into a straight, vertical pipe (L = 0.8 m, I.D. = 4.0 cm, ε = 0.016 mm). The water flows through the pipe, then spouts from the end of the pipe into the atmosphere, and finally spills into another open container. The water level near the top of the reservoir is 1.0 m above the bottom of the reservoir. Calculate the average velocity of the water within the pipe, and the volumetric flow rate of water spouting from the outlet of the pipe.
