Assignment 2 Solutions 2. A flocculator paddle of the design and dimensions shown below is rotated through water at 20 o C with an angular speed of 4.0 r/min. (a) How much power is dissipated into the water? (b) If the tank in which this paddle is rotating has the dimensions of 4 × 4 × 4 m and the flow through the tank is 5000 m 3 /d, determine the Gt value for the flocculator. (a) Total Power Paddle velocity for Inner board = π x 2 x 4 x 1/60 = 0.419 m/s Paddle velocity for outer board = π x 3 x 4 x 1/60 = 0.628 m/s Power for each paddle Paddle tip speed (V p ) = 0.75 x paddle velocity Co-efficient of drag (Cd)
