down the slide, to ensure that the customers do not burn their
bottoms. A pump is to be installed under the slide, with a 5.00m-long, 4.00-cm-diameter hose supplying swimming pool water for the slide. The pump is 80 percent efficient and will rest
fully submerged 1.00 m below the water surface. The roughness inside the hose is about 0.0080 cm. The hose discharges
the water at the top of the slide as a free jet open to the atmosphere. The hose outlet is 4.00 m above the water surface.
For fully developed turbulent pipe flow, the kinetic energy flux
correction factor is about 1.06. Ignore any minor losses here.

power in watts) required to drive the pump. C6.1 A pitot-static probe will be used to measure the velocity distribution in a water tunnel at 20°C. The two pressure lines
from the probe will be connected to a U-tube manometer
which uses a liquid of specific gravity 1.7. The maximum
velocity expected in the w...
