The selection of the ideal pump is based upon the following assumptions: 1. That the pressure at P 1 and P 2 is a gage pressure, that is at atmospheric pressure, therefore indicating the P 1 and P 2 are equal to zero. 2. That the shaft rotation rate, n = 20 rad/s. 3. That rate of flow, Q = 6.309 m/s 4. Using the continuity theorem, that implies that the density is conserved. Using the energy equation, + α + z 1 = + α + z 2 – h p + h f + h turbine Using P 1 = 0 and P 2 = 0 (due to the assumption that gage pressure equals zero), v 1 = 0, v 2 = 0, and h turbine = 0 (since there is no turbine present), and h f = . Therefore, find h f h f = – equation 1 However, we have to first determine the average velocity of the pipe, V. Using Q = VA Q = VA V = = = 3.459 10 -3 Using the value of V as obtained above, and substitute into equation 1. Therefore, h f = = = 1.647 10 -5 By substituting the value obtained from h f , it is substituted into the energy equation and h p
