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.

A high-head hydroelectric scheme consists of a reservoir from which the water is delivered to four Pelton turbines through a low pressure tunnel LT = 10 km long, 4 m in diameter, lined with concrete. The tunnel splits into four steel pipelines (penstocks) 500 m long, 2 m in diameter each terminating in a single nozzle, the area of which is varied by a spear valve. The maximum diameter of each nozzle is 0.9 m. The difference in level between...
