3. Procedure : 1. Switch on the pump. 2. Fully open the control valve of the bench. 3. Fix guide vane position (eg. 1-10). 4. Set the brake free (e.g. zero torque). 5. Take the reading necessary to calculate the volume flow rate. 6. Take the reading of torque, speed and pressure of the inlet flow.

### 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
