75. Water (ρ = 1000 kg / m ^{3} , µ = 0 .001 Pa · s) ﬂows through a horizontal section of 4 cm diameter pipe. The pipe has a roughness of 0 .2 mm.

78. An engineer needs to measure the minor loss coeﬃcient of a reducing elbow which has already been installed in a piping system. Because of limited access to the piping system, the only available pressure taps are 1 m upstream and 0 .75 m downstream of the elbow. A mercury manometer is attached at these locations and reads 7 .5 cm _{H}_{g} when the mass ﬂowrate is 1 kg / s. What is the minor loss coeﬃcient for the elbow? Assume that all pipes are smooth. The ﬂowing ﬂuid is water with ρ = 1000 kg / m ^{3} and µ = 0 .001 Pa · s.

A centrifugal pump has a pump curve that can be described by
h _{p} = 4 − 10 Q ^{2}
where h _{p} is the pump head in metres of water and Q is the volume ﬂowrate in L/ min. This pump is used to supply water (ρ = 1000 kg / m ^{3} , ν = 10 ^{−} ^{6} m ^{2} / s) to the system shown below. The sum of all minor loss coeﬃcients is 12 and the total length of tube is 8 m.

80. A centrifugal pump draws water (ρ = 1000 kg / m ^{3} , µ = 0 .001 Pa · s) from a large reservoir and pumps it through 1335 m of 30 cm inside diameter pipe with roughness ǫ = 0 .5 mm. Over the range of interest the pump head can be expressed by
h _{p} = A − BQ ^{2}
where h _{p} is the head produced by the pump, Q is the volume ﬂowrate, and A and B are constants. When the pipe exit is at the same elevation as the reservoir surface the ﬂowrate is 17 .0 m ^{3} / min. However, when the exit of the same pipe is raised to an elevation of 50 m the ﬂow reduces to 13.3 m ^{3} / min. How high can the exit be raised before the ﬂow will be zero? For all conditions the pipe discharges to atmosphere. Neglect minor losses in this problem.

84. A centrifugal pump is connected to a piping system as shown below. The pipe is 5 cm in diameter and has a roughness of ǫ = 0 .5 mm. The two valves are identical and have minor loss coeﬃcients of 1.0 when fully open and 20 when 50% op en. With both valves fully open, the pressure guage reads P _{A} = 250 kPa. When both valves are 50% open, the ﬂow is 355 L/ min. The pump curve can be represented by a parabola. The free surface in the tank is at the same elevation as the pipe exit. Let ν = 10 ^{−} ^{6} m ^{2} / s and ρ = 998 kg / m ^{3} . Determine P _{A} if the ﬁrst valve is fully open and the second valve is fully closed.
