2. A pool has an area A = 50 m2 and depth h = 2.5 m. The pool is filled with water to the maximum height. An electrical pump is used to empty the pool. There are two pipes coming out the pump: one is submerged into water has a radius r1 = 4 cm the other has a radius r2 = 2.5 cm. Answer the following questions ignoring friction, viscosity, turbulence.

Calculate the net force on the bottom of the pool.

Calculate work done by the pump required to empty the pool in 5 h.

Calculate the speed of the water flow in the submerged pipe.

a. V=A*h = 50*2.5=125 m^3=1.25*10^8 cm^3.

Dw = 1g/cm^3 = 0.001kg/cm^3 = Density of water.

Mass=1.25*10^8cm^30.001kg/cm^3

= 1.25*10^5 kg = Mass of the water.

F=mg = 1.25*10^5kg * 9.8N/kg = 1.225*10^6 N. = Force on bottom.

b. Work = F*d = 1.225*10^6 * 2.5 = =

3.0625*10^6 Joules.

a.)

P=P initial + pgh

101,000 Pa + (1000)(9.8)(2.5)

P=125500Pa.

P=F/A

125500=F/50

6.3*10^6N
