Question

Darcy's law gives us the *volume flow rate*-volume per
time (for example, cubic meters per day, m^3/day). Another way to
express volume is on a *per-unit-area* basis. For example,
if we have a 1-m^3 cube, we know its base is 1 m^2 the
cross-sectional area of the cube-and its height is 1m. If we fill
the cube with water, we can say we have 1m of water per unit area.
Darcy's law can be rearranged to calculate the volume flow rate per
unit area. This is called the *specific discharge*, which
has units of length per time (for example, meters per day, m/day).
Completing parts A through C will illustrate how specific discharge
relates to the volume flow rate. (Hint: Assume that the units for
hydraulic conductivity are m/day and the units for cross-sectional
area are m^3.)

Part A: Suppose 1 m^3 of water is pumped from a well into an empty cylindrical tank. If the water level is 3.0 m above the base, what is the cross-sectional area of the tank? Hint: Volume of a cylinder = πr^2h = area of base × height.

A=

Part B: If it takes half a day to pump the 1.0 m^3 of water into the tank, what is the flow rate in term of volume per time?

Part C: What is the flow rate in term of specific discharge?

Part D: Write Darcy's law so that it calculates the specific discharge.

Answer #1

**A:**

The volume puped out = volume occupied by water in the tank.

i.e. 1m3 = volume of tank = Area of base x height

1 m3 = (cross section area) x (3m)

Thus, cross-sectional area of the cylindrical tank is
**(1/3) m2 = 0.33 m2**.

**B:**

Volumetric flow rate = 1m3 / 0.5 day = **2 m3 /
day**.

**C:**

Specific discharge = flow rate per unit area of the tank

i.e. Specific discharge = (volumetric flow rate)/(cross-sectional area of the tank)

= (2 m3 / day) / (1/3 m2)

Therefore, **Specific discharge = 6 m/day**.

**D:**

Darcy's Law is given by (in terms of volumetric flow):

where;

Q = rate of water flow, K = hydraulic conductivity, A = tank cross section area, dh/dl = hydraulic gradient.

Converting it in terms of specific discharge (Q/A):

A
cylindrical water tank has water flowing in at I cubic meters per
second. Let A be the area of the cross section of the tank in
meters. Suppose water is flowing from the bottom of the tank at a
rate proportional to the height of the water level. Set up the
differential equation for h, the height of the water, introducing
and naming constants that you need. You should also give the units
for your constants.

e volume flow rate is
Q = 0.076m^3/s, the pressure of the pump is P = 113702N/m^2, the
same with the pressure of the boiler

constant (k)?
A. The
spring constant is the ratio of the displacement of the spring from
its equilibrium position divided by the force applied to the
spring
B. When the

(y-axis) against the force applied to the spring that
caused
C. Spring constant is a unitless number related to the “stiffness”
or strength of the spring.
