QUESTION 1

Two storage tanks A and B containing petroleum product discharge through pipes each 0 3 m In diameter and 1 5 km long to a Junction D From D the product IS earned by a 05 m diameter pipe to a third storage tank C, 08 km away The surface of the liquid In A IS initially 10 m above that In C and the hquid level In B IS 7 m higher than A

Calculate the initial rate of discharge of the liquid If the pipes are made of mild steel

The pump IS used to lrft water over a vertical distance of 6 5 m by means of a 10 cm diameter pipe, 65 m long, for which the friction factor (¢) = 0 005

2 1 Determme the rate of flow and the power supplied to the pump

22 A second Identical pump IS connected In parallel with the onqmal pump Calculate the Increase m the flow rate and the power Input

QUESTION 3

A vacuum system IS required to handle 10 g S-1 of vapour (MW = 56 kg krnol') so as to maintain a pressure of 1 5 kPa In a vessel situated 30 m from the vacuum pump If the pump IS able to rnamtam a pressure of 0 15 kPa at ItS suction point, what diameter pipe IS required? The temperature IS 290 K, and the Isothermal conditions may be assumed In the pipe, whose surface can be taken as smooth The Ideal gas law IS followed
