**MathMate**, Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 12:15amThe average head is 10.2-3.9=6.3 m

g=9.8 m/s²

When the area of the orifice is small compared to the tank area, and if the tank is vented, pressure at the water surface equals that of the outlet, then the output velocity is approximately √(2gh).

Volume of discharge

=velocity * area * time

=√(2gh)*2.30×10^−2*2.4

=0.6 m³ approx.
