This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Find the total head loss if the flow velocity is 16ft/sec in the 2" pipe. The pipes are all commercial steel. (The loss factor for the entrance to the 4" pipe is 0.5 and the 2"pipe exit loss factor is 1.0.)

See attachment.

NOTE: There is some missing information (or drawings) in the problem statement. The following solution will assume the fluid is water, a constant pipe diameter of 2 in, pipe length of 100 ft, and entrance and exit loss factor are 0.5 and 1.0 respectively.

I have explained the procedure, so the effect of changing the pipe length can be tracked and reworked again. Thanks

Finding Vertical Distance in Pipe Line System

For the system in attachment, calculate the vertical distance between the surfaces of the two reservoirs when water at 10 degrees celcius flows from A to B at the rate of 0.03 m^3/s. Both pipes are cast iron and the elbows are standard. The total length of the 3" pipe is 100 meters. For the 6" pipe, it is 300 meters.
