and the flow rate is comparatively small. we measure the force generated by a jet of water striking a flat plate or a hemispherical cup. but a different type of turbine would then be needed. such turbines can generate considerable output at high efficiency. It may be noted that the Pelton wheel is best suited to conditions where the available head of water is great. we need to understand how the deflection of the jet generates a force on the buckets. are not uncommon. and compare the results with the computed momentum flow rate in the jet The objective of this experiment is: 1. and how the force is related to the rate of momentum flow in the jet. For example. The same water power would be available if the head were only 10 m and the flow were 10m^3/s. Although the concept is essentially simple. causing it to rotate and to develop power. Introduction: Water turbines are widely used throughout the world to generate power. To measure jet force on a hemisphere 3. and hydraulic efficiencies greater than 95%. Powers in excess of 100 MW. To predict the output of a Pelton wheel. and to determine its optimum rotational speed. In the type of water turbine referred to as a Pelton wheel. To measure jet force on a flat plate 2. In this experiment. one or more water jets are directed tangentially on to vanes or buckets that are fastened to the rim of the turbine disc. a Pelton wheel running at some 250 rev/min could be used to develop about 900 kW. with a head of 100 m and a flow rate of 1 m^3/s. To compare the results with theory  Theory: . The impact of the water on the vanes generates a torque on the wheel.

The actual flow of water can be measured using the volumetric tank with a stopwatch . 4. 2.Water is filled into the volumetric tank of the hydraulic bench until approximately 90% full. 5.Fully close the bench flow control valve. 3.The apparatus is located on top of the Hydraulic Bench with the left hand support feed of the Impact of Jets Apparatus located on the two left hand locating pegs of the Hydraulic Bench so that the apparatus straddles the weir channel. V1then switch on the pump.Open V1 gradually and allow the piping to fill with water until all air has been expelled from the system. 6.The feed tube is connected from the Hydraulic Bench to the base of the Impact of Jets Apparatus by using a hose. Apparatus & Procedure: 1.A spirit level is about to attached to base board and level the unit on top of the bench by adjusting the feet. 7.

this seen from figure (3) too. that the force applied on the hemispherical vane (cup) is greater than the force that applied on the flat plate jet. the distance of jet from the nuzzle. from the calculations you can see too. Discussion: We were doing this experiment on two kinds of jet. that are flat plate (with β=0o) and hemispherical vane (with β=90o).292N. experimentally and theoretically methods. when we apply fluid flow on any jet (plate or sphere).9%. and the fluid that we used . and when you applies theoretical method in the same sample you will gets F'y=2. from this we can see that these two values very close to author. if you applies the experimentally method in first sample you will gets Fy=2. for example.1242N. so the error equals to 7. kind of the jet itself. Also. and this force depends on the value of the flow rate. and in our calculations or from the figures (2) we can see that the force could be found from two methods. this pushes the jet by a force.  Conclusion: First thing that concluded from this experiment.
