Question: there are two open tanks connected by a homemade duct...

Question details

There are two open tanks connected by a homemade duct. This duct is formed by a tube of 11/4 "internal diameter joined to another of 21/4" internal diameter (the union is by means of a brass ring of about 1.5 cm wide and 0.5 cm thick) welded to both tubes; it is arranged on the side wall, near the bottom of the tanks. If there is water in the tanks and the level of water remains constant, how large will the flow (in ft3 / s) circulate through the pipeline if the difference in water levels is 33 '? The two tubes are short, so you can assume that the loss of surface friction load on them is negligible.
