## Discharge Rate of Liquid from Orifice in Tank Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Flowrate = Area of Orifice*(sqrt(2*[g]*Height of Tank))
ν = a*(sqrt(2*[g]*h))
This formula uses 1 Constants, 1 Functions, 3 Variables
Constants Used
[g] - Gravitational acceleration on Earth Value Taken As 9.80665
Functions Used
sqrt - A square root function is a function that takes a non-negative number as an input and returns the square root of the given input number., sqrt(Number)
Variables Used
Flowrate - (Measured in Cubic Meter per Second) - Flowrate is the volume of liquid flowing over unit area in unit time.
Area of Orifice - (Measured in Square Meter) - The Area of Orifice is often a pipe or tube of varying cross-sectional area, and it can be used to direct or modify the flow of a fluid (liquid or gas).
Height of Tank - (Measured in Meter) - The Height of Tank is the distance from the centre of orifice to the top of the tank.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Area of Orifice: 9 Square Meter --> 9 Square Meter No Conversion Required
Height of Tank: 5 Meter --> 5 Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
ν = a*(sqrt(2*[g]*h)) --> 9*(sqrt(2*[g]*5))
Evaluating ... ...
ν = 89.1256781180373
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
89.1256781180373 Cubic Meter per Second --> No Conversion Required
89.1256781180373 89.12568 Cubic Meter per Second <-- Flowrate

## Discharge Rate of Liquid from Orifice in Tank Formula

Flowrate = Area of Orifice*(sqrt(2*[g]*Height of Tank))
ν = a*(sqrt(2*[g]*h))

## How does an Orifice Work?

Orifice plates are a primary flow element, detecting the flow of a fluid passing through the plate by sensing the pressure drop across the plate. When a fluid flows through a restriction in a pipe, it creates a pressure difference between upstream and downstream of the restriction.
