Unformatted text preview: The diameter of the pipe is 8 cm on the intake side and 5 cm on the discharge side. The volume flow rate is 8 x 10-3 m 3 /s. Find the a) Mass flow rate; b) the maximum height that the water can be pumped up and c) the pressure difference across the pump. For part c) you may assume that the elevation difference between the pump inlet and outlet are negligible. Problem 4 ?? m Problem 5 Water flows through a horizontal pipe with a 5 cm diameter at 20 L/s. The pressure drop across a valve is measured to be 2.5 kPa. Find the irreversible head loss of the valve, and the pump power needed to overcome the resulting pressure drop. Problem 6 Δ P= 2.5 kPa...
