Two reservoirs are connected through a $930 \mathrm{~m}$ long, $0.3 \mathrm{~m}$ diameter pipe, which has a gate valve. The pipe entrance is sharp (loss coefficient $=0.5$ ) and the valve is half-open (loss coefficient $=5.5$ ). The head difference between the two reservoirs is $20 \mathrm{~m}$. Assume the friction factor for the pipe as 0.03 and $g=10 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^{2}$. The discharge in the pipe accounting for all minor and major losses is $\mathrm{m}^{3} / \mathrm{s}$
