It is related to the mechanical energy loss by g m E g e h L loss mech, loss mech, = = . 12-52C Pump head is the useful power input to the pump expressed as an equivalent column height of fluid. It is related to the useful pumping power input by g m W g w h u pump, u pump, pump = = 12-53C The kinetic energy correction factor is a correction factor to account for the fact that kinetic energy using average velocity is not the same as the actual kinetic energy using the actual velocity profile. Its effect is usually negligible (the square of a sum is not equal to the sum of the squares of its components). 12-54C By Bernoulli Equation, the maximum theoretical height to which the water stream could rise is the tank water level, which is 20 meters above the ground. Since the water rises above the tank level, the tank cover must be airtight, containing pressurized air above the water surface. Otherwise, a pump would have to pressurize the water somewhere in the hose. 12-34 Chapter 12 Bernoulli and Energy Equations 12-55 Underground water is pumped to a pool at a given elevation. The maximum flow rate and the pressures at the inlet and outlet of the pump are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The flow is steady, one-dimensional, and incompressible. 2 The elevation difference between the inlet and the outlet of the pump is negligible. 3 We assume the frictional effects to be negligible since the maximum flow rate is to be determined, . loss mech, = E Properties We take the density of water to be 1 kg/L = 1000 kg/m 3 (Table A-3). Analysis ( a ) The pump-motor draws 3-kW of power, and is 70% efficient. Then the useful mechanical (shaft) power it delivers to the fluid is kW 1 . 2 kW) 3 )( 70 . ( electric motor- pump u pump, = = = W W We take point 1 at the free surface of underground water, which is also taken as the reference level ( z 1 = 0), and point 2 at the free surface of the pool. Also, both 1 and 2 are open to the atmosphere ( P 1 = P 2 = P atm ), the velocities are negligible at both points ( V 1 = V 2 = 0), and frictional losses are disregarded. Then the energy equation for steady incompressible flow through a control volume between these two points that includes the pump and the pipes reduces to loss mech, turbine 2 2 2 2 u pump, 1 2 1 1 2 2 E W gz P m...
