    Orifice water flow rates

    Hello I have a problem that hopefully someone can help me with. I need to work out the detention time of a pond as it drains from a snorkel. The problem is I have multiple draining holes in the snorkel at different heights which will obviously have different flow rates as water level changes...

    quantum wink in/out rates

    Has anyone measured the rate that matter winks in and out of existence per unit volume per mass? How fast is quantum fluctuations producing and destroying particles?

    Need help with water flow rates

    From a reservoir we have an irrigation line that is about 25 feet below the surface water. The pipe is 12" in diameter and runs 3000 feet to a 10" diameter pipe that runs another 1370 feet to the outlet. The elevation drop from the origin of the pipe to the 10" pipe is about 35 feet. From the...

    Flow rates and mass flow rates.

    Hi everyone, First off, hello and I hope this is the right place to post this. I'm doing an apprenticeship in engineering at the minute as a machinist. The course I'm studying at college has a mechanical principle unit. I understand 75% of the things taught but things get pear shaped when...

    Related rates, pressure loss

    A container with volume V contains air at standard atmospheric pressure and is surrounded by a vacuum. A small circular hole of area A is punched in the container. Estimate the pressure loss as a function of time. Basically, as far as I can see, this is a fairly basic related rates problem...

    finding rates in motion

    two buses started @ the same depot and @ the same time and traveled in opposite directions. After 4 hours they were 480 miles apart.The rate of the fast bus was 10 mph faster than the slow bus. find the rate of each bus. ^what do i do?
