A=30m, B=32m, C=27m, D = 26m The fluid is Water.

Given the siphon system above; the head loss between the inlet and point B (highest point) is ¾ of the velocity head. The head loss in the pipe itself between B and the end of the pipe is ¼ of the velocity head. The pipe diameter is 25cm and alpha= 1.

Find: 1. The discharge
2. The pressure at point B
