# Find Total Head Loss

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.)

#### Solution Preview

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
