1a / state the formula giving flowrate (qv) in terms of valve flow coefficient, pressure drop across the valve and relative density of fluid. State the units of the variables in the formula.

B/ A valve having a flow coefficient (Kv) of 65 operates with oil of relative density 0.85 and a pressure drop of 1.4 bar across the valve.

Calculate the flowrate of the oil.

Develop a Java program which gives the Volume, and Time to Fill a Swimming Pool with Water

Develop a Java program which, given the width, length and depth (in metres), of a swimming pool, determines and outputs: (a) the volume in litres, and (b) the time in hours to fill the swimming pool. Assume the rate of flow into the pool is 2.5 litres per second. Note: 1 litre = 1000 cubic centimetres, therefore 10 litres = 0.01 cubic metre, hence 1 metre = 1000 litres (see Figure below).

Write the source code for each class in a separate file which must have the same name as the class name together with the extension .java. Remember also that by convention, class names commence with a capital letter.

Provide a well-structured solution that is easy to read. You should use meaningful identifier names and should provide useful comments.
