Problem A

Aqueous nitric acid is to be pumped from a storage tank, through 278 m of steel
pipe (inside diameter = 3.20 cm, absolute roughness when new = 0.0035 mm) to
discharge freely at a point 57.4 m above the pump outlet. The pump will be situated
immediately beside the storage tank, and will draw acid from a point 5.60 m below
the surface of the liquid in the tank which is open to the atmosphere. Calculate:

(a) the power required to deliver acid solution at a rate of 2.35 kg/s

## (b) the gauge pressure at the pump outlet

(c) the percentage increase in power that the pump must be designed to deliver to
maintain flow at 2.35 kg/s when corrosion has increased the absolute roughness of
the pipeline to 0.050 mm

(d) the gauge pressure at the pump outlet when the pipe roughness has increased
to 0.050 mm.

Assume that the nitric acid has S.G. of 1.068 and a viscosity of 1.06 x 10−3 Pa s.

## Ans: 2.58 kW, 1228 kPa, 15.5%, 1409 kPa

Problem B

A factory draws its water supply from a lake located on a nearby hill at an elevation
of 75 m above the factory. The water is supplied via 3000m of 15 cm diameter cast
iron pipe. For control purposes, there are several valves in the line, together with a
number of standard elbows. The valves and elbows together have a total equivalent
length of 30m. The water is received at the factory at atmospheric pressure. the
present water supply system as described is just adequate to meet the maximum
requirements of the factory, although the maximum flow is not known. However, it
is proposed to double the size of the factory in the near future, which would mean
doubling the water requirements.
Determine the fluid power required for a pump to double the flow rate. Assume that
the Fanning friction factor f = 0.079Re−0.25 (Blasius equation).
Ans: 146 kW
