Unformatted text preview: To calculate this we must convert psi into ft --> 2.31 ft = 1 psi Discharge Pressure = 45 psi ==> 45 psi x 2.31ft/1psi = 103.95 ft Column and Discharge Head Losses = 5 psi ==> 5 psi x 2.31ft/1psi = 11.55 ft TDH = 120 ft + 15 ft + 103.95 ft + 11.55 = 250.5 ft b) WHP = 225 GPM x 250.5 ft / 3960 = 14.233 hp Answer: a) 251ft b) 14.2hp Discharge Pressure Static Lift Drawdown Ground Surface Well Casing Column Pipe Pump Bowls Discharge Head Motor Static Water Level...

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.
