Any good fluid mechanics text
To do this problem, you need to know literature on pump operation
i> First you need to plot H and Efficiency versus Q. I have done so the Excel sheet 'Question 4'.
Then calculate V (m/s) in the pump using
Then you must calculate the system head by using ...
The solution provides detailed and step-by-step explanation and answer (including characteristic graph) for the problem.
