increase the speed to 2500 rpm. What is the flow rate under these new

conditions, assuming no change in efficiency?

Ans. 94.6 cu. ft/min

5. A pump operating with a 1-ft diameter impeller works against a total head of

water is 5 ft high. There is no water on the down side of the flume. What is

the total force on the gate? How far below the upper edge of the gate does

the resultant act?

Ans. F = 7800 lbf, d = 4.33 ft

7. A 7 ft diameter disk lies in a 30 degrees plane in the horizontal and is covered

with water to a depth of 12 ft from its center. Find the magnitude, direction,

and location of the resultant force on the disk.

Ans. R = 28,813.8 lbf, 60 degrees from horizontal

H = 12.06 ft

8. A container supports 9.3 ft of water, 6.5 ft of oil (SG=0.71), and 5 ft of air at

some bearings from atmospheric to 100 psig. (a) What mass flow rate is

required to compensate for friction losses of 2 hp within the pump (eff = 0.8)?

(b) What is the overall efficiency if the electrical power to the motor is 12 hp?

Ans. (a) 7.74 kg/sec

(b) 0.667

18.800 gallons of fuel oil (SG = 0.85) per hour must be transferred from the

bottom of one tank to the top of another. The level in the source tank is 3

feet above the pump centerline, and the level in the discharge tank, is 100 ft

above the pump centerline. What is the required hydraulic power?

Ans. 0.202 kW
