Question

A 30 cm pipe is required for a town’s water supply. As pipes
of this diameter were not available in the market, it was decided
to lay two parallel pipes of equal diameter. Find the diameter of
the parallel pipes. Assume f is same for all pipes

Answer #1

**Diameter of parallel pipe=22.73cm**

Consider a pipe that branches out into two parallel pipes and
then rejoins at a junction downstream. The two parallel pipes have
the same lengths and friction factors. The diameters of the pipes
are 2 cm and 4 cm. The flow rate in pipe with 2 cm diameter is 10
L/min.
Draw piping system
What is the flow rate in the other pipe? (L/min)
What is the headloss at the junction? Friction factor is 0.001
and the length of the...

The water supply of a building is fed through a main pipe 7.00
cm in diameter. A 2.00 cm diameter faucet tap, located 2.10 m above
the main pipe, is observed to fill a 25.0 L container in 30.0
s.
(a) What is the speed at which the water leaves the faucet?
correct answer of 2.65m/s
(b) What is the gauge pressure in the 7.00 cm main pipe? (Assume
the faucet is the only "leak" in the building.)

A 400 mm diameter pipe, conveying water, branches into
two pipes of diameters 300 mm and 200mm respectively. If the
discharge in the 400 mm diameter pipe is 380L/s, compute the
average velocity in this pipe. If the average velocity in 300mm
diameter pipe is 200L/s, find the discharge and velocity head in
200mm diameter
pipe.

Water flowing at 40 L/s through a 9 cm diameter pipe transitions
to a 3 cm diameter pipe.
What is the water pressure difference between the pipes?
By what factor does the speed of the water increase moving from
the larger to smaller pipe?

The water flowing through a 1.7 cm (inside diameter) pipe flows
out through three 1.3 cm pipes. (a) If the flow rates in the three
smaller pipes are 26, 19, and 12 L/min, what is the flow rate in
the 1.7 cm pipe? (b) What is the ratio of the speed of water in the
1.7 cm pipe to that in the pipe carrying 26 L/min?

The water flowing through a 2.0 cm (inside diameter) pipe flows out
through three 1.4 cm pipes. (a) If the flow rates
in the three smaller pipes are 24, 15, and 11 L/min, what is the
flow rate in the 2.0 cm pipe? (b) What is the
ratio of the speed of water in the 2.0 cm pipe to that in the pipe
carrying 24 L/min?

The water flowing through a 2.1 cm (inside diameter) pipe flows
out through three 1.2 cm pipes. (a) If the flow rates in the three
smaller pipes are 26, 19, and 10 L/min, what is the flow rate in
the 2.1 cm pipe? (b) What is the ratio of the speed of water in the
2.1 cm pipe to that in the pipe carrying 26 L/min?

A centrifugal pump with a 10 cm suction pipe and a 7.5 cm
diameter discharge pipe has a measured capacity of 0.019
m3/s (water), a suction side vacuum of 20 cm mercury
(relative density = 13.6) and a discharge pressure of 240345
N/m2 (gage). The suction and discharge pipes
are at the same elevation. Assuming that the head loss
due to friction is negligible, what is the pump power required

#23) Water flowing at 40 L/s through a 9
cm diameter pipe transitions to a 3 cm diameter pipe.
What is the water pressure difference between the pipes?
By what factor does the speed of the water increase moving from
the larger to smaller pipe?

The
water supply of a buidling is fed through a main pipe 6.0 cm in
diameter. A person on the 2nd floor uses a 2.00 cm diameter faucet
to fill a 25 L container in 90 seconds. The faucet is 8.00 m above
the main line. a) What is the speed at which the water leaves the
faucet? b) What is the pressure in the main pipe? (the pressure at
the faucet is 1.0 atm)
