be 10% of the pressure head at the lower end, calculate the discharge through the pipe. Also calculate the pressure and velocity at the upper end. 08 300 lps of water is flowing in a pipe having a diameter of 300mm is bent by 130, find the magnitude and direction of the force on the bend. The pressure of water flowing is 425kN/m2 (gauge). 06 With a neat sketch, derive an equation for the discharge through an inclined Venturimeter, with, flow downwards. 06 A 100 mm diameter pipe suddenly enlarges into 150 mm diameter.pipe. Find the loss of head in metres when the flow is 25 lps. Find also the loss of head in meters when the flow is in the opposite direction. 06 Consider two pipes of same length and having the same roughness coefficient, with the diameter of one pipe being 60% of the other. Determine i) the ratio of discharges through the pipes if the friction loss for both of them is to be the same ii) the ratio of friction losses if the pipes carry the same discharge. 08 Derive an equation for the head loss due to sudden expansion of a pipe. 06 A closed tank has a sharp edged orifice of 40mm diameter in one of its side walls. The tank is filled with an oil of weight density 83.6 kN/m3 to a depth of 2m above the centre of the orifice. The air above the oil is under a pressure of 5000 pascals. The orifice discharges the liquid into the atmosphere.A micro manometer contraction gauge gives a jet diameter of 31.5mm at vena contracta. The coordinates of a point on the jet with respect to vena contracta are x = 122cm.& y = 19.3cm. Determine the discharge in lps. To what value should the tank be raised in order to double the discharge through the orifice. 08 Derive the discharge formula for an external cylindrical mouth piece. 06 8.
