- A pump at an elevation of 300m is pumping 0.05 m³/s of water through 2.4 km of 150-mm pipe to a reservoir whose level is at an elevation of 380m. What pressure will be found in the pipe at a point where the elevation is 335m above the datum and the distance (measured along the pipe) from the pipe is 970m? Compute the capacity of the pump. Use E/D= 1.5384x10-³

The diameter of the impeller of the pump is 145 mm, the pump speed is 2900 rpm. The equation to calculate the flow V in the valve depending on the pressure drop differential pressure (dp) in the valve isV = 4 * sqrt (dp), whereas V is in m³/h and dp in bar. Please estimate the water flow.

The rotor diameter is 250 mm and the blades it is 30 mm wide at the outlet. Assume that the blades are radial at the exit. Determine the theoretical height considering infinite number of blades and power required when the pump runs at 800 rpm.*arrow_forward* - A fire starts in an apartment building in downtown Boston. When the firefighters arrive, they immediately get to work putting out the fire using a fire hose. The water for the fire hose is provided by a fire hydrant at ground level. Assume that the velocity of the liquid coming from the fire hydrant is 1.6 m/s, and that the pressure at the hose nozzle is atmospheric pressure (101000 Pa). a. The firefighters start with the ground floor, so there is no change in height between the fire hydrant and the hose nozzle. If the velocity of the water coming out of the nozzle is 12.8 m/s, find the pressure at the fire hydrant in units of Pa. b. After the ground floor fire is put out, another fire is spotted on another floor. A firefighter carrying the hose is lifted on a platform to the same height as the fire, which is 44.35 m above the ground. Assuming that the pressure found in part a) remains constant, what would be the new velocity of the water coming out of the nozzle at this new height?
