SUMMER 2017

ME7 QUIZ #1
Solve the following problems neatly and summarize your answer.

P1: If a pump discharges 75 gpm of water whose specific weight is 61.5 lb/f 3 (g = 31.95 fps2), find (a) the mass flow rate in lb/sec, and
(b) the total time (in seconds) required to fill a vertical cylinder tank 120 inches diameter and 144 inches high.

P2: A weather man carried an aneroid barometer from the ground floor to his office atop a tower. On the ground level, the barometer
read 0.766 m. Hg absolute; topside it read 0.77 m. Hg absolute. Assume that the average atmospheric air density was 0.075 lb/f 3 and
estimate the height of the tower in inches.

lb
P3: A 10 f diameter by 15 f height vertical tank is receiving water ( 62.1 . ft at the rate of 300 gpm and is discharging
cu
through a 6-in ID line with a constant speed of 5 fps. At a given instant, the tank is halffull. Find the water level and the mass change in
the tank 15 min. later.
