Water falls from a height of 60 m at the rate of 15 kg/s to operate a turbine. The losses due to frictional force are 10% of the input energy. How much power is generated by the turbine? (g = 10 m/s^{2})
(1) 10.2 kW
(2) 8.1 kW
(3) 12.3 kW
(4) 7.0 kW

Correct answer: (2) 8.1 kW
Explanation:
P_{in} = \(\frac{mgh}{t}\) = \(\frac{15 \times 10 \times 60}{1}\)
= 9000 w
P_{out} = 90% of P_{in}
= 8.1 kW
