A siphon is used to drain water from a tank
A siphon is used to drain water from a tank, as illustrated in Figure P14.51. The siphon has a uniform diameter. Assume steady flow without friction.
(a) If the distance h = 1.00 m, find the speed of outflow at the end of the siphon.
(b) What If? What is the limitation on the height of the top of the siphon above the water surface? (For the flow of the liquid to be continuous, the pressure must not drop below the vapor pressure of the liquid.)
