Figure 7.18 shows a liquid-level system in which two tanks have cross-sectional areas A1 and A2, respectively. The volume flow rate into tank 1 is qi. A pump is connected to the bottom….
Derive the differential equations in terms of the liquid heights h1 and h2.
Figure 7.20 shows a hydraulic system of two interconnected tanks that have the same cross-sectional area of A. A pump is connected to tank 1. Assume that the relationship between the voltage applied to the pump and the mass flow rate into tank 1 is linear; that is, qmi = kpva, where kp is called the pump constant and can be obtained by experimental measurements. Tank 1 is connected to tank 2, which is connected to a reservoir. The liquid leaves each tank through an outlet of area Ao at the bottom. Derive the differential equations in terms of the liquid heights h1 and h2.
