```							Let the velocity at inlet is v1 and at outlet is v2by the equation of continuity A1v1 = A2v2so v1/v2 = A2 / A1 = pi*r1^2 / pi*r2^2 = r1^2 / r2^2 = (4x10^-2)^2 / ( 2x10^-2)^2 = 16/4 = 4v1/v2 = 4by Bernoulli equationP1+1/2rho*v1^2 = P2+1/2rho*v2^2P1 - P2 = 1/2rho'(v1^2 - v2^2) where rho' = specific gravity of waterP1 - P2 = rho g h, where rho = specific gravity of mercuryP1 - P2 = 13.6*9.8*15x10^-2 = 1.9992 N/m^2Now 1.9992 = 1/2 *1000 [v1^2 - (v1/4)^2] v1^2 = 0.00426v1 = 0.0653 m/ sHence rate of flow of water = A1v1 = pi*(r1^2)*v1 = 3.14*(4x10^-2)^2*0.0653 = 3.28 m^3/sThanks & Regards,Nirmal SinghAskiitians Faculty

```							Sir you did the wrong calculation and according to your method,
Let the velocity at inlet is v1 and at outlet is v2, Given that d1=8cm-->r1=4cm
d2=4cm-->r2=2cm
by the equation of continuity A1v1 = A2v2
so p(r1)²v1=p(r2)²v2
(r1)²v1=(r2)²v2
16v1=4v2
v2=4v1.
by Bernoulli equation,
P1+1/2 rho×(v1)² = P2+1/2 rho`×(v2)²
P1 - P2 = 1/2rho`(v2²-v1²)--->(1) where rho` = density of water
P1 - P2 = rho g h---->(2), where rho = density of mercury
Therefore from (1)and(2),
rho gh=1/2rho`[(v2)²-(v1)²]
rho/rho` gh=1/2[16v1²-v1²]
We know that specific gravity of mercury =density of mercury(rho)/density of water(rho`)
Therefore rho/rho`=13.6
Therefore 13.6×9.8×15×10^-2=1/2[15v1²]
13.6×9.8×2×10^-2=v1²
Therefore v1²=2.6656
v1=v2.6656
v1=1.6326 m/s², v2=4v1=41×1.6326=6.5304 m/s².
Therefore rate of flow of water = A1v1
=p(r1)²v1
=p×(4÷100)²×1.6326
=0.008209646  m^3/s
=82.09×10^-4 m^3/s.

```							Let the velocity at inlet is v1 and at outlet is v2
inlet diameterd1=8cm-->r1=4cm=0.04m
outlet diameterd2=4cm-->r2=2cm=0.02m
by the equation of continuity A1v1 = A2v2
so pr1²v1=pr2²v2
v1=(r2²/r1²)v2-->v1=(4²/2²)v2
v1=v2/4
Therefore v2=4v1
by Bernoulli equation
P1+1/2rho*v1^2 = P2+1/2rho*v2^2
P1 - P2 = 1/2rho((v2)²-(v1)²) where rho = density of water
P1 - P2 = rho` g h, where rho` = density of mercury
rho`gh=1/2 rho((v2)²-(v1)²)
rho`/rho gh=1/2((v2)²-(v1)²)
But rho`/rho =density of mercury/density of water = specific gravity of mercury=13.6
Therefore 13.6×9.8×15×10^-2=1/2 ((4v1)²-(v1)²)
13.6×9.8×15×10^-2=1/2 (16v1²-v1²)
13.6×9.8×15×10^-2=1/2 (15v1²)
Therefore v1²=2.6656
v1=1.6326 m/s²
Therefore v2=4v1=4×1.6326=6.5304 m/s²
Therefore Rate of flow of water=A1v1
=pr1²v1
=(22/7)×(4/100)²×1.6326
=0.008209646
Therefore rate of flow of water=82.09×10^-4 m^3/s
