Re: overunity" revised" (paul baughn)
Your first calculation is kinetic energy and your second is potential energy. Apples and oranges. You don't get the 4.5 m/sec without adding a bunch of energy at the beginning. You have to accelerate the water in the pipe from a standing start to 4.5m/sec. That takes converting some potential energy to kinetic. How much energy? Granting for the moment all of your calculations, about 10.5 million J.
