The Grand Coulee Dam is 1270 m long and 170 m high. The electrical power output from generators at its base is approximately 2010 MW .
How many cubic meters of water must flow from the top of the dam per second to produce this amount of power if 91.0 % of the work done on the water by gravity is converted to electrical energy? (Each cubic meter of water has a mass of 1000 kg.)
