Question details

Q2. [continuity equation for confined flows] The upright blue tube shown in the lecture has two outlets open, and it contains a very viscous liquid. It has a cylindrical cross-section with a diameter of 2.5 cm. Assume that the average outlet flow speed is given by 0.02h where vis the flow velocity and h is the current height of liquid above that outlet. The radius of each outlet is 2 mm, and the geometry is given in the figure. If the tube starts off full to the top, howlong does it take before liquid stops flowing out of the upper outlet? 5 cm 5 cm Outlet radius 2 mm
