Question

# A manometer connected to a closed tap reads 3.5×105 N/m2. When the valve is opened, the reading of the manometer falls to 3.0×105 N/m2, then the velocity of flow of water is: (consider the water pipe to be horizontal)

Solution

## The correct option is B 10 m/s Applying Bernoulli's theorem per unit mass of liquid, P1ρ+v212=P2ρ+v222 Since the pipe carrying the water is horizontal, the elevation is same everywhere. v1=0 as initially, tap was closed & v2=v when tap opens and water starts to flow. As the liquid starts flowing, its kinetic energy increases and pressure will decrease. ⇒12v2=P1−P2ρ ⇒12v2=(3.5×105)−(3×105)103 ⇒v2=2×0.5×105103 ⇒v=√100=10 m/s
