Homework Assignment 4 1. A river flowing toward a lake at an average velocity of 5 m/s at a rate of 200 m 3 /s at a location 100m above the lake surface. Determine: a. the total mechanical energy of the river water per unit mass. b. the power generation potential of the entire river at that location. p.s. the density of water to be = 1000. kg/m 3 2. A modal aircraft internal-combustion engine produces 20W of power. Determine how much power is this in: a. lbf ft/s? b. hp? 3.
