PhysCasts: A Fluid Problem Involving Hydrostatics and Hydrodynamics

Hall, B. (Brenton)


This question deals with both hydrostatics and hydrodynamics. A 4.0cm diameter horizontal pipe connects passes through a freshwater dam at a depth of 6.0 meters and is sealed by a plug. A) Find the magnitude of the frictional force between a plug and the pipe wall? B) With the plug removed what volume of water exits the pipe in 3.0h?
