If the pressure above and below the pipe is atmospheric and the pipe diameter is 50 mm, what is the length of time (s; 0DP) it will take to drain 5000 L of the material. The fluid properties are: density = 950 kg m^(-3), K = 0.50 Pa s^n, and an n = 1.50 s^(-1). Hint: assume laminar flow and apply Bernoulli's equation, solve to find the velocity and then the volume flow rate. (Please show me the full working, greatly appreciated)
