Answer #1

A cylindrical underground storage tank with a diameter of 21 ft
and a height of 25 ft is filled with gasoline. Assuming the density
of gasoline is 675 kg/m3, answer the following questions. Determine
the mass of the gas in the tank in both lbm and kg

A
cylindrical tank is full of oil, and has a height of 30 m and a
diameter of 80 m. If the oil has a density of 52 lb / ft ^ 3, a-
what is the volume of the tank (expressed in [m ^ 3])? b- What is
the total mass of the oil (expressed in [kg]) contained in the
tank?

An isopentane storage tank has a cylindrical geometry with 2 m
in diameter and 4 m in height. The tank is initially found with a
liquid level of 0.5 m above the base of the tank. This tank is
removed 100 L / s of isopentane as a discharge that is sent to a
later process. At a given moment, a recharge of 300 L / s of
isopentane is initiated to the tank to recover the level of the...

A storage tank has a Diameter of 6 m and a height of 3 m. The
output volumetric flow from this tank is given by fout(t)=2h(t)
where h(t) is the height of the liquid in the tank. At a particular
time the tank is at steady state with an input flow of 275 L/min
.
1) develope the mathematical model describing this
process.Define all variables and give initial conditions where
appropriate. Clearly state all assumptions that you used to
develope...

A storage tank, open at the top, has a diameter 2.3 m and a
height 1.8 m . During a storm, the tank catches rain at the rate of
16.9 cm3/s. Simultaneously, water leaks out from the
bottom of the tank through a hole that has a cross-sectional area
A = 0.051 cm2.
During a long rain storm, what is the maximum depth of water in
the tank?
Give your answer in units of m.

(a) A large, open at the top, upright cylindrical tank contains
fuel oil with a density of 0.890 ✕ 103 kg/m3.
If the air pressure is 101.3 kPa, determine the absolute pressure
(in Pa) in the fluid at a depth of 22.5 m. ____ pa
(b)Determine the force (in N) exerted by only the fluid on the
window of an instrument probe at this depth if the window is
circular and has a diameter of 3.70 cm.

A conical tank of diameter 6 m and height 10 m is filled with
water. Compute for the work needed to pump all the water 2 m above
the tank. The water has a density of 1000 kg per cubic meter.

Q 1(d) Refer to Fig. 3. Water flows out of a cylindrical tank,
0.8m in diameter, through a 30mm diameter pipe. i) If the velocity
in the pipe is 0.6m/s, at what rate does the surface level on the
tank fall? ii) If the tank is 500mm in height, how long will it
take to empty? iii) Calculate the volume of water collected in the
container in t = 4 minutes

A cubical tank has sides of 4.5m which contains three
immiscible liquids at same depths. A water upto a height of 1.5m
above the base,
An immiscible liquid of specific gravity 0.9 is filled in between
both liquids (mid-portion) upto 1.5m height, the upper remaining
part is filled
with oil of specific gravity 0.79. Calculate
(i) The value of pressures at the top, at the interface points and
at bottom on one side of the tank
(ii) The position of...
