EXAMPLE 6.7 Oil, with 900 kg/m3 and 0.00001 m2/s, flows at 0.2 m3/s through 500 m of 200-mmdiameter cast-iron pipe. Determine (a) the head loss and (b) the pressure drop if the pipe slopes down at 10° in the flow direction. Solution First compute the velocity from the known flow rate Q R2 V 0.2 m3/s (0.1 m)2 6.4 m/s Then the Reynolds number is Red From Table 6.1, Vd (6.4 m/s)(0.2 m) 0.00001 m2/s 128,000 0.26 mm for cast-iron pipe.
