The spacing is 2h 4h 0.4 ft. The Reynolds number is VDh ReDh (6.0 ft/s)(0.4 ft) 0.00002 ft2/s 2.4 in 0.2 ft, and Dh 120,000 The flow is therefore turbulent. For reasonable accuracy, simply look on the Moody chart (Fig. 6.13) for smooth walls f 0.0173 hf f L V2 Dh 2g 100 (6.0)2 0.4 2(32.2) 0.0173 2.42 ft Ans.

For more accuracy, take Deff 2 3 Dh from laminar theory; then 2 3 Reeff and from the Moody chart read f and p 80,000 0.0189 for smooth walls.
