The pump draws water from a sump at A through alSO mm diameter pipe . The pump is located at B at a height 2 m above the level of the sump. 31 m/s and jet diameter 75 mm. Determine the flow rate from the nozzle and the power required to drive the pump. B 2m Fig. 21 Fire engine pump installation. 0366 1113/S Applying Bernoullis equation between points A and C 2 ? V PJ\;" Pc Vc + +z = + +zc-H Y 2g A Y 2g At the free surface of the slimp, the pressure is atmospheric so that PA = 0, the velocity V i\ is also zero as the slimp is considered very large and A can be taken as datum so that ZA = 0 also Pc = atmospheric pressure = 0, the head developed by the pump is Hp , substituting proper values in the equation vi.

The venturimeter has three important portions: a converging part, constant. area (throat) and a diverging part as shown in the Fig. 12. 36 Basic Fluids Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines t i ~---~ D ......................................................................

This control volume being fixed relative to the plate and is therefore moving with it. The components of velocities perpendicular to the plate are considered. In cases where the plate is moving, the most helpful technique is to reduce the plate and associated volume to rest by superimposing on the system equal and opposite plate velocity.
