Question

Water flows at a
velocity of 4.2 m/s from one reservoir (z = 41.5 m) to another
reservoir (z = 8.0 m) over a 1011-m long, 300-mm diameter pipeline.
If the total head loss is 19 times the velocity head, determine the
power (in N-m/s) extracted by a turbine (z = 8.0 m) located between
the reservoirs. Assume γ = 9790 N/m^{3}.

Select one:

a. 4.772e4

b. 8.555e4

c. 6.075e4

d. 8.224e4

Answer #1

A pump is used to deliver water from a large reservoir to
another large reservoir that is 20 m higher.
The inlet of the pipe is submerged in the one reservoir and the
exit is just above the surface of the other reservoir. If the
friction head loss in the 200-mm-diameter, 4-km-long pipeline is
2.5 m for every 500 m of pipe length, determine the required power
output of the pump so the flow is 0.6 m3/s.

Water (ρ = 999 kg/m3, μ = 1.3x10-3 N/s) from a large tank with
P1 flows through a pipeline at the rate of 0.14 m3/s to atmosphere
as shown. The pipe diameter of the entire piping system is 20 cm
and material is cast iron. Knowing discharge velocity V2 is the
same as the flow velocity in the pipe, no discharging nozzle loss,
Kinlet = 0.5, and Kelbow = 1.1, calculate the absolute P1 (MPa) in
the tank needed to...

A house is situated 20 m above the datum. It has to be
supplied water from nearby
reservoir. The pipe length from the reservoir to the house is 200
m, diameter is 30 cm,
flow has to be 0.2 m3/s. Friction loss allowed is 5+Z m and the
pressure to be maintained
in the pipe in the house is 20 kN/m2. Also consider minor losses
(entrance and outlet).

datum?...

A pump delivers water (r= 1000 kg/m3, µ= 0.860x10-3 kg/m·s) from
one reservoir to another reservoir through 120 m of 0.05 m diameter
pipe. Volumetric flow rate in the pipe line is measured with
venturi meter. Throat diameter of venturi meter is 38 mm and
pressure drop in the venturi meter is 156.9 kPa.The surface of the
pipe is rough e/D=0.0001. Calculate the power of the pump required
for the water–transfer. See the figure below for several pipe–
fittings installed...

A discharge of 2.8 m3
/s flows through a hydraulic turbine. On the 1 m inlet pipe at
elevation
43.5 m, a pressure gage reads 345 kPa. On the 1.5 m discharge pipe
at elevation 39, a
vacuum gage reads 150 mm of mercury. If the total head lost through
pipes and turbines
between elevation 43.5 and 39 is 9 m, what power may be expected
from the machine?

The mean velocity of water in a 150 mm horizontal pipe is 0.9
m/s. Calculate the loss of head through an abrupt contraction to 50
mm diameter. If the pressure in the 150 mm pipe is 345 kPa, what is
the pressure in the 50 mm pipe, neglecting pipe friction?

A Francis turbine has the following information:
Pressure head supply into turbine HNet = 300 m of water, • Q =
10 m3/s, • N = 400 rev/min, • Runner diameter Drunner = 3m, •
Runner inlet width Br = 0.5 m, • Velocity (absolute) at the inlet
Vai = 15 m/s, • Draft tube gives 2 m height before water exits, •
