the two forms of energy in question here.

Posted by paul baughn on Jun 14, 2002 at 13:59

(208.62.125.146)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.

Your first calculation is kinetic energy and your second is potential energy. Apples and oranges.this is because each calculation involves a separate formula.

read you physics book.

there is kinetic energy ke=1/2mv^2

and

potential energy PE=mghthe result of these two formulas is given in Joules.

if the energy from one calculation = 10 J

and the result of the other calculation = 10 J

then you would say it was an equalibrium correct?however if it shows overunity then you begin to grasp at straws.

please inform me of your opinion.

and include your math that I may have others examine it.
