A closed system whose KE and PE remain constant. Pressure of a flowing fluid is associated with a form of mechanical energy. Flow work/mass = P/ ρ Energy content of a flowing fluid/mass flow = e = P/ ρ + v 2 /2 + g Z ENGR 301
e mech = P/ ρ + v 2 /2 + g Z Energy associated with flowing fluid E = m e ENGR 301

Known : velocity v = 3 m/s volumetric flow rate = 500 m 3 /s elevation = Z = 90 m To be determined : total mechanical energy/mass in river water power generation potential of river Governing equations : useful mechanical energy of river water = e = v 2 /2 + g Z power potential = m e assuming zero velocity at lake Density of water = 1000 kg/m 3 Solution : e = 4.5 (m/s) 2 + (9.81 m/s 2 )(90 m) = 887.4 m 2 /s 2 or J/kg = 0.887 kJ/kg mass flow rate = (500 m 3 /s)(1000 kg/m 3 ) = 500,000 kg/s Power generation potential = (0 887 kJ/kg)(500 000 kg/s) = 443 700 kJ/s

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
