Question

**A pumping system is designed to pump from a storage
reservoir located at an elevation of 1015 feet. The pump elevation
is 1005 feet. The pump discharge flow rate is 4500 gal/min and the
water temperature is 100˚ F. Between the storage tank and the pump
is 30 feet of 14-in DIP pipe (f = 0.018) with one (1) rounded
entrance (kent = 0.05), and two (2) 45 -degree bends (k45 = 0.30).
What is the NPSHA for this system? Round your answer to the nearest
whole foot.**

A pumping system is proposed to lift water from a
storage tank at an elevation of 2100-feet up to another storage
facility at 2300-feet. The pump is at an elevation of 2090-feet.
The two storage tanks are connected through a 2350-foot, 18-in
diameter pipeline. If the friction factor of the pipeline is 0.017,
what is the system curve equation?

A farmer wants to pump water from a river to a very big open
storage tank nearby using a 55-m long, 16-cm diameter plastic pipe
with 5 threaded 90° regular bends, 5 threaded 45° regular bends,
and one fully open gate valve. The water velocity near the river
surface is 2.7 m/s and the pipe's inlet is placed in the
river normal to the direction of water flow to take advantage of
this water speed. The elevation difference between the...
