diameter pipe at 200 lbm/min. Its
temperature is 60oF. Find the velocity
of water flow (fps).
Practice
 Water from a pipe line is diverted into
weigh tank for exactly 9 minutes.
Tank weight increases 4765 lbf.
Water temperature is 60oF. Find the
flow rate (gpm).
Practice
 Steady flow of gas through a pipe
whose diameter decreases from 1.0
meter to 60cm. The gas density
decreases from 2 kg/m3 to 1.6 kg/m3.
The entering velocity is 25 m/s.
What is exit velocity (m/s)?

Energy equation
 Comparable to First Law of
Thermodynamics – conservation of
energy
 Bernoulli Equation limited by
assumptions & missing terms
 General energy equation – expanded
factors
General energy equation
 Terms: energy per weight of flowing
fluid
 Units: length
 Convention: head
General energy equation
 Equations:
 Pump head: hp = [(V22 – V12)/ 2g] + ( z2 – z1)
+ hf + ( P2 – P1)/
 hT omitted from this equation
 Power added to water: Ẃp = hp  Q
Where Q represents the volumetric flow rate of
the water
 Pump efficiency p = [(power added to water)/
(power supplied to motor)] 100
Example
 Water flows from a large reservoir at
the rate of 1.20 ft3/s through a pipe
system. See Figure. Calculate the
friction losses.

 The pump supplies energy to the flow
causing the upstream pressure in the
12 in. pipe to be 10psi. The
downstream pressure in the 6 in. pipe
is 30psi. The water flow rate is 3.92
