This question got me all confused. The final part says the inlet head is 10ft above the invert of the inlet end .
I find it hard to understand/visualize the basin as described.
Viessman & Hammer defined h as the elevation of the center-line of the outlet. Now, I would understand if the question says "inlet head is 10ft above the invert of the outlet end"
Am I missing something or maybe i need to brush up my knowledge of discharge from tanks/stormwater storage?
Here are my thoughts:
If the inlet and outlet pipes are at the same elevation (bottom of drain), then h = 10 - (D of outlet*0.5)
The diameter of the inlet does not matter.
makes more sense now.
