Unformatted text preview: diameter inlet pipe as shown in Figure. The turbine discharge pipe has a 4ft inside diameter. The static pressure at section (2), 10ft below the turbine inlet, is 10in Hg vacuum. If the turbine develops 2500 hp, determine the power lost from (1) to (2) . 7. A conical tube is fixed vertically with its smaller end upwards. The velocity of flow down the tube is 4.5m/s at the upper end and 1.5m/s at the lower end. The tube is 1.5m long and the pressure head at the upper end is 3.1m of the liquid. The loss in the tube expressed as a ‘head’ is g 2 ) V V ( 3 . 2 2 1 where V 1 and V 2 are the velocities at the upper and lower ends respectively. What is the pressure at the lower end ? 2/2...
