a. Using the Bernoulli equation for point 1 at the surface of the inlet reservoir and point 2 at the surface of the pipe, the head delivered by the pump is:
Because point 1 and 2 are at atmospheric pressure hence ∆P =0.
Change in height ...
The solution includes step-by-step calculations in 2 pages of a Word document. A reference on Bernoulli equation for pump system is also provided.
