I can't easily help you with the flow rate calculations but I offer the following observations: This is an undersea pumped storage system. The capacity of the sloped pipe is $\pi r^2 l = \pi\cdot 0.25 \cdot 10000 = 1963 \ \mathrm {m^3} $. It will hold 2001 T of sea water. The empty pipe anchors will have to counter a buoyancy of 2000 T. The pressure on the ...
