Unformatted text preview: ater tunnel is 2.3 m/s. Your job is
to select an appropriate U-tube from a manufacturer which
supplies manometers of heights 8, 12, 16, 24, and 36 in. The
cost increases significantly with manometer height. Which
of these should you purchase?
*C6.2 A pump delivers a steady flow of water ( , ) from a large
tank to two other higher-elevation tanks, as shown in Fig.
C6.2. The same pipe of diameter d and roughness is used
throughout. All minor losses except through the valve are neglected, and the partially closed valve has a loss coefficient
Kvalve. Turbulent flow may be assumed with all kinetic energy flux correction coefficients equal to 1.06. The pump net
head H is a known function of QA and hence also of VA
QA/Apipe; for example, H a bVA, where a and b are constants. Subscript J refers to the junction point at the tee where
branch A splits into B and C. Pipe length LC is much longer 3
