Velocity of Efflux at The Bottom of A Tank

A large tank is filled with water. The total pressure at the bottom is \(3.0atm\). If a small hole is punched at the bottom, what is the velocity of efflux?

Solution:

A large tank is filled with water. The total pressure at the bottom is \(3.0atm\). A small hole is punched at the bottom.
Pressure at the bottom due to water coloumn $$ (3-1)atm$$ $$=2atm$$ $$ =2\times 10^5 Pa$$

The equation for pressure is $$ P=h\rho g$$
Hence, $$ h=\frac{P}{\rho g}$$ $$=\frac{2\times 10^5}{1000g}$$ $$=\frac{200}{g}$$
Hence, velocity $$ v=\sqrt{2gh}$$ $$=\sqrt{\frac{200}{2g}}$$ $$=20m/s$$
