Unformatted text preview: P11.74 The 32-in pump in Fig. 117:: is used at 1170 r/min in
“(a system whose head curve is H, (ft) = 100 + 1.5Q2,
- with Q in thousands of gallons of water per minute. Find
the discharge and brake horsepower required for (a) one
pump, (b) two pumps in parallel, and (c) two pumps in series. Which conﬁguration is best?
P11.75 Two 35-in pumps from Fig. 11.7b are installed in par-
1 allel for the system of Fig. P11.75. Neglect minor losses.

P11.75 P11.76 Two 32—in pumps from Fig. 11.70 are combined in par-
allel to deliver water at 60°F through 1500 ft of hori-
zontal pipe. If f 2 0.025, what pipe diameter will ensure
a ﬂow rate of 35.000 gal/min for n = 1170 r/min? Cll.1 The net head of a little aquarium pump is . ‘ ~ . given by the
