CSUS ENGR132 ZHOU HOMEWORK #7 SOLUTION 1. A pump draws water through an 8 in. suction pipe at surface A, and discharges it through a 4 in-pipe horizontally into air at C with a velocity of 12 ft/s. the 4 in. To what height h above the water surface at A can the water be raised if 25 hp is delivered to the pump? Assume that the pump operates at 60% efficiency and that the head loss in the pipe between A and C is ݄ = 2 ܸ /2g. Assume α = 1.0 at all locations. (Answer: 120ft)

What horsepower must be applied to the water to pump 3.0cfs at 68°F from the lower to the upper reservoir? Assume that the head losses in the pipe is given by ݄ ௅ = 0.018(L/D)(V²/2g), where L is the length of the pipe in feet and D is the pipe diameter in feet, and at exit head loss is given ݄ ௅ = (V²/2g).
