A large tank of liquid under pressure is drained through a smoothly contoured nozzle of area A. The mass flow rate is thought to depend on nozzle area, A, liquid density, ?, difference in height between the liquid surface and nozzle, h, tank gage pressure, ? p , and gravitational acceleration, g. Determine how many independent ? parameters can be formed for this problem. Find the dimensionless parameters. State the functional relationship for the mass flow rate in terms of the dimensionless parameters.
