(1 bookmark) Consider the diagram below that shows a water pump used to move water from one large reservoir to another at a higher elevation. The pump’s performance is approximated by the expression Havialable = Ho-a-Q2 where Ho is 24.4m of water and a is 0.0678m/Lpm?, Havailable is in units of meters and capacity, Q, is in units of Lpm (Note: Lpm = liters per minute). Estimate the capacity delivered by the pump in this system (give your answer in Lpm).
22-2y = 7.85 m (elevation difference)
D = 2.03 cm (pipe diameter) KL, entrance = 0.50 (pipe entrance) KL. valve = 17.5 (valve) KL elbow = 0.92 (each elbow-there are 5) KL. exit = 1.05 (pipe exit)
L = 176.5 m (total pipe length) E = 0.25 mm (pipe roughness)
