Question: water flows into a 5 m3 tank at a rate...

Question details

Water flows into a 5 m3 tank at a rate of 10 kg/s. Water flows out of that tank at a rate of 6 kg/s. The tank is initially empty. a) Is this process continuous, batch, or semibatch? Why? b) Is this process transient or steady-state? Why? c) Write a mass balance equation for the process. Start with the general balance equation. State your reasoning for cancelling any terms. d) How long will it take for the tank to overflow (min)?Water flows into a 5 m3 tank at a rate of 10 kg/s.
