###### Question details

The primary water supply is Reservoir 1, located at the top of a hill. Reservoir 1 has a large volume and there is a concrete gravity dam (Dam 1) at one end. Reservoir 1 drains via a branched pipeline into Reservoirs 2 and 3, with valves to direct the flow into each reservoir as required.

 arameter Symbol Value Units Height of dam HDam 11 m Height of water above middle of Pipe A H 10 m Height to middle of Pipe A from the datum Z1 150 m Height to middle of Pipe B from the datum Z2 50 m Height to edge of Pipe C from the datum Z3 0 m

Assume that Valve C is closed due to planned maintenance activities in Pipe C.  Therefore, water flows only through Pipe A and Pipe B.

Determine the velocity at the end of Pipe B assuming no energy losses and the Reservoir 1 water level remains at 10 m above the inlet of Pipe A.
