##### Reference no: EM13708185

A turbine extracts energy from water flowing through a 11-cm-diameter pipe at a pressure of 700 kPa with an average velocity of 11 m/s. If the turbine is 90 percent efficient, how much energy can be produced if the water is emitted from the turbine to the atmosphere through a 19-cm-diameter pipe?
