15. Engineers has long desired of harnessing the tides in the Bay of Fundy. Although in places the
difference between high tide and low tide can be as much as 17 m, the average change in height for
the entire bay is about 4.0 m. The bay has the same area as a rectangle that is about 300 km long and
65 km wide. Water has a density of 1000 kg/m3.
a) Calculate the volume of water and the mass of the water that flows out of the bay between high
and low tide.

that the decrease in gravitational potential energy is equal to that of the mass calculated in (a)
being lowered a distance of 2.0 m.
c) If half the gravitational potential energy lost when the tide flows out could be converted to
electricity over a 6 h period, determine the amount of electrical power that would be generated.

other forms of energy? (4)
