(a) With holes at A and C but none at B, write the equations of motion for this system in terms of h1 and h2 . Assume that h3 = 20 cm, h1 > 20 cm; and h2 < 20 cm. When h2 = 10 cm, the out‡ow is 200 g/min. (b) At h1 = 30 cm and h2 = 10 cm, compute a linearized model and the transfer function from pump ‡ow (in cubic centimeters per minute) to h2 . (c) Repeat parts (a) and (b) assuming hole A is closed and hole B is open.
