the 
loss 
of 
head in mm of water per 400 m length when air
flows through a 200 mm diameter pipe at the
corresponding speed. Assume that the pipes have
geometrically similar roughness
and assume
the
densities of air and water as 1·23 and 1000 kg/m ^{3}
and the absolute viscosities as 1·8 x lo ^{5} and
0·12 Pa.s respectively.
