How can I calculate the volume (cubic meter per second) of water flowing out a tank? (or the velocity in meter per second)
A horizontal pipe with a diameter of 1 meter is mounted (within the tank) 10 meters below the surface (that is 10 meter for the center line of the pipe). What's the formula to calculate the water volume flowing out the tank?
Is the volume of the tank important? Let's say one tank with a diameter of 5 meter and another with a diameter of 20 meter, the volume of the water flowing out at the beginning is the same I guess? Off course for the first tank volume will decrease quicker than for the second tank.
Is there a difference if the pipe is mounted within or outside the tank?
