Question

Hi there, we have handed this in and it has been marked but unfortunately I seem to have a misunderstanding regarding the directions of flow and when you show those in the flow tables. May you please assist by elaborating on the explanation for these questions?

Step 1

1.1

Draw the balanced pipe network along with the flow and its direction as:

Step 2

The Darcy-Weisbach expression for r according to Hardy Cross method is written as:

Step 3

Substitute the respective values and calculate t...
