Consider a situation where water is used as the coolant in a heat exchanger for a micro-electromechanical device (MEM device). The characteristic velocity is estimated to be 10 microns/s, the length scale of the system is 100 microns, and the characteristic temperature difference of the problem is 10 K. Given what you know about the system, what assumptions can you make about the flow (namely: is it viscous (diffusion)dominated or inertia (convection) dominated, is it conduction dominated or convection dominated, are viscous dissipation effects important, etc.)

Water in a partially filled large tank is to be supplied to the roof top, which is 8 m above the water level in the tank, through a 2.2-cm-internal-diameter pipe by maintaining a constant air pressure of 300 kpa (gage) in the tank. if the head loss in the piping is 2 m of water, determine the discharge rate of the supply of water to the roof top in liters per second.
