Oil with a density of 900 kilograms per cubic meter and a kinematic viscosity of 0.00001 square meters per

second will be required to flow at a rate of 0.2 cubic meters per second through a 500 meter long, 200

millimeter diameter cast iron pipe. It is anticipated that this pipeline will have a downward slope in the

direction of flow. The actual downward slope is initially unknown, and the relationship of the downward

angle as it relates to the required pumping power is desired. It can be assumed that the internal surface

roughness of the pipe will be 0.00026 meters. A plot of the pumping power, in horsepower, as a function

of the downward sloping angle is required. Is there an angle at which the pumping power becomes zero?

What is this angle? Assume the downward sloping angle can range from 10 to 20.
